Newtown, Pa. – With National Seafood Month (October) just around the corner, PETA took the opportunaty to rank the country’s Top 10 Vegan Sea Food Brands, and local company Good Catch landed a spot on the list! Good Catch’s crispy vegan fillets and savory vegan crab cakes are available in supermarket freezer aisles—along with its flaky “fish” sticks and more.

“We had fun tasting so many vegan items, and Good Catch’s fish-free options are off the hook,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “PETA’s favorite brands will help anyone celebrate National Seafood Month while leaving sea animals in the sea, where they belong.”

Vegan seafood is free of saturated animal fat and cholesterol and prevents fish from being gutted on the decks of fishing boats, live lobsters from being dropped into boiling water, and crabs from being dismembered while still conscious. And vegan meats are more popular than ever—sales increased 148% in 2020 compared to the year before, and 47% of Americans want to incorporate more vegan foods into their meals in 2021.

Other honorees include BeLeaf in City of Industry, California; Kuleana in San Francisco; Sophie’s Kitchen in Sebastopol, California; May Wah Vegetarian Market in New York City; and The Plant Based Seafood Co in Grimstead, Virginia. Each company will receive a framed certificate from PETA, which offers many vegan seafood recipes on its website.

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit PETA.org or follow the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
