American Seafoods Group ("American Seafoods" or "the Company"), a global leader in sustainable proteins and one of the world's largest at-sea processors of wild Alaska pollock and wild Pacific hake, announced today the publication of its annual sustainability report. The report details the Company's continued advancement of its environmental and social responsibility efforts as it innovates and sustainably harvests the world's best-managed fisheries. American Seafoods is the first Alaska seafood company to release its sustainability report in 2024, which further validates its category leadership in environmental protection initiatives.

"I am absolutely thrilled with the progress American Seafoods has made with achieving key sustainability metrics as we remain at the forefront of innovation in our industry," said Einar Gustafsson, CEO of American Seafoods. "We have a deep appreciation of the marine environment and a key understanding of the importance of sustainably managing our fisheries. These pillars are the very foundation of our success, and we look forward to pushing our efforts even further to help build a cleaner and healthier planet for all. In addition to the significant progress that our team made on the environmental front, I am equally proud of our team's continued dedication to supporting our invaluable crew, the local communities in Alaska and our broader industry."

Chief Sustainability Officer of American Seafoods, Tim Fitzgerald, added: "I am very excited about the sustainability trajectory that American Seafoods is on, and this report is just the latest addition to our company's rich history."

Mr. Fitzgerald continued, "American Seafoods predicates itself on an unwavering commitment to the science-based management of our fisheries, continuous improvement of our vessels' efficiencies and our longstanding commitment to third party certifications and full traceability. The bottom line is that at American Seafoods, sustainability is central to everything that we do. While we are proud of our achievements, we know there is always more to be done. American Seafoods profoundly understands that responsible and conservative natural resource management is the predominant driver of long-term success for our business. We will continue to lead on this front."
