On the outer banks of the southeast, fishing has been a way of life for families for hundreds of years and we’d like to do our part in acknowledging our fisherman while preserving our streams, rivers, and oceans for generations to come. Tyrian Blue is committed to sustainable seafood sourcing, while adhering to our core principles.
Drawing on guidelines established by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch Program, Marine Stewardship Council, and Blue Ocean Institute. Tyrian Blue carries seafood designated as Green Label (best choice) or Yellow Label (good alternative). You’ll never see Red Label (non-sustainable) seafood in our store.
We buy directly and locally whenever possible. This helps independent fishermen stay solvent by making sure they receive a fair price for their hard work.
We pass our knowledge on to you. We make sure our staff is well informed when it comes to the sources and harvesting practices used by our purveyors.
