These are more than just words on our menu – it’s our promise that all of the seafood we serve is sourced to the highest standards. Because, as one of the world’s largest seafood purchasers, we believe it’s our responsibility to protect and preserve our oceans and marine life for generations to come.

A Lifelong Commitment

Doing things the right way since 1968.

Red Lobster has been committed to seafood sustainability since we first opened our doors in 1968. As a founding member of the Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA) in 1997, we helped establish guidelines for best practices and aquaculture certifications. We’re also proud to have spent decades building personal relationships with suppliers who share our values.

Seafood With Standards

Sourcing our seafood responsibly takes a lot of hard work – but it’s the only way to do what’s best for our guests and the oceans.

The Story Behind Our Seafood

Lobster is what we do, and we do it with pride. Whether it’s Maine, Norway, Rock or Langostino, our lobster is always wild-caught by fishermen, many of whom have provided us with lobster for generations.

Every crab we serve is wild-caught. We may serve Snow and King Crab year-round, but we only work with suppliers who strictly adhere to crab harvesting seasons and follow catch quotas to help maintain healthy crab populations.

Whether wild-caught or farm-raised, all our shrimp is held to the highest standards. We know, because we helped set the standards as a founding member of the Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA).
