Sustainability’s time has come to the world's food chains. Pole-and-line caught fish is the most sustainable method of sourcing from the world’s oceans. We completely support this concept and are working to educate and provide this source of seafood to the grocery chains and food provisioners worldwide.William Purcell (President of Purcell International)
