RAINFOREST Seafoods Limited has signed a partnership valued at $1.25 million with The University of the West Indies Alligator Head Marine Lab (UWI AHML) to implement protective measures for the highly threatened reef fish population, including parrotfish, while training local fishermen in environmentally sustainable fishing methods.

As the company gears to observe World Oceans Day on Wednesday, June 8, this partnership is joined by Rainforest’s announcement that it is no longer participating in the importation, production and sale of parrot fish, the seafood distributor said in a statement on the weekend.

“At Rainforest, our operations have been guided by the highest environmental standards. We are constantly updating ourselves on developments that may threaten our ecosystems, both regionally and internationally,” said CEO of Rainforest Seafoods Brian Jardim.
