We recently launched a new partnership with King Crab Legs Co. and Shopping Gives. This new program gives online retail customers the ability to support SeaShare with a donation during the checkout process.
King Crab Legs Co. is an offshoot of Maine Lobster Now Co., located in Saco, Maine, and offers king, snow and Dungeness crab, as well as Alaska salmon and shrimp. We are excited about this new program, and the opportunity for more consumers to learn about our important work!
If you have an online retail presence, you can add Shopping Gives to your platform and identify SeaShare as the recipient. Reach out to us if you want more information!
The National Marine Fisheries Service also renewed our 3-year Prohibited Species Donation Program permits. These permits allow SeaShare to have salmon and halibut bycatch retained for distribution at food banks. This is less than 10 percent of our distribution, but provides an important source of protein to food banks and feeding centers.
