Day Boat Seafood

By Kate Medley, April 4, 2011  |  Meet the Blogger  |  More Posts by Kate Medley
Day Boat Seafood was started in 2006 by lifelong anglers and longtime friends, Howie Bubis and Scott Taylor.  Both responsible fishermen and successful businessmen, Howie and Scott approached this as a rare opportunity to combine a commercial venture with their love of the sea and their dedication to its preservation.  As a primary producer of wild-caught Florida seafood, Day Boat has a vested interest in sustainable seafood practices and is working closely with the Marine Stewardship Council to gain sustainability certifications.

I dont' think 10 or 11 hooks qualify as a "longline". I would consider this a highly sustainable way to fish.

The only problem is that Day Boat's longline swordfish vessels snag and harm or kill endangered sea turtles and discard tons of shark overboard. This is not sustainable.
