Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Acme Smoked Fish Foundation?

The Acme Smoked Fish Foundation (ASF) is a beacon of innovation and inclusivity within the seafood industry. Established in 2021 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit, we are a living tribute to Eric Caslow, a third-generation owner of the Acme Smoked Fish Corporation. Eric's unwavering commitment to the seafood sector drove us to create a platform that champions the future of this industry.

Our mission transcends mere business. We aim to ensure that the seafood industry thrives even in the face of global challenges like climate change. We strive to achieve this by fostering innovation and education in the regions we serve, and by pushing the boundaries of what's possible.

One of our flagship initiatives, the Seafood Industry Climate Awards (SICA), seeks to amplify solutions that reduce the seafood industry's carbon footprint. But we don't stop there. We're dedicated to elevating the roles of underrepresented groups within the industry, believing that diversity is key to unlocking sustainable solutions.

ASF is more than just a foundation. We're a community of passionate individuals, driven by the belief that change is possible through collaboration. Our extensive network, including influential figures like Rob Snyder and strategic collaborators like Context Partners, solidifies our position at the intersection of seafood, sustainability, and societal change.

We're on a mission to accelerate promising solutions, build resilient communities, and leave a lasting impact on the seafood industry and the planet.

Energy Sustainability of Mi'kmaq RAS Hatchery Using Solar Power: Mi’kmaq Nation

The Mi’kmaq Nation in Northern Maine is coupling renewable energy with their Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS) to farm Eastern Brook Trout and address the food security needs of their community. By installing solar panels on their farm and hatchery, they aim to buffer disruptions to their food system brought on by climate change. 

Alaska Longline Fishermen’s Association Boat Energy Transition Accelerator: ALFA BETA

Fuel usage in wild capture fisheries contribute significantly to carbon emission and high costs in the seafood industry. The ALFA BETA SICA Award takes on this challenge, piloting technology that will lead the way for the electrification of the SE Alaska Troll and Long Line Fleet. Read more about the project here.

Lift All Boats Initiative: Luke’s Lobster 

The Maine lobster industry faces many challenges; among them the rising cost of fuel, the related carbon emissions, as well as the lack of diversity. These challenges are representative of fisheries more broadly in the US, and the Lift All Boats program is taking on these challenges and demonstrating a path forward that is inclusive and climate positive. 

Why are climate initiatives the focus of the Acme Smoked Fish Foundation?

Time is of the essence. Climate related impacts are already disrupting the seafood industry, with more to come, potentially leading to the collapse of fisheries, economies, and viability of the sector. The Acme Smoked Fish Foundation believes that if innovators, from researchers to product developers to entrepreneurs, have increased attention and resources, they can help turn the tide and allow the seafood industry to be a leader in the climate movement.

Why Acme’s cold smoked salmon products?

To make the biggest impact! Acme’s cold smoked salmon products are our most popular selling items, so adding our 1% for Climate Initiatives label to those items allows us to fund more innovative solutions to decarbonize the seafood industry.
