Why We Did This
Co-Founders Daniel McQuade and Paul Neves worked in the seafood industry for decades before founding KnowSeafood. Seeing the disconnect between all of the benefits high-quality seafood offers and the general mistrust consumers felt towards cooking and eating it, the pair created a better way to buy seafood.
Drawing on their deep experience and connections in the industry, Daniel and Paul founded KnowSeafood to sidestep greedy middlemen, use transparency to combat fraud and unnecessary additives, and bring superior seafood to a wider range of people.
Remove the Problem!
Rampant seafood fraud – affecting a third of seafood products – causes many people to avoid it altogether out of fear they might patronize shady businesses, support unsustainable fishing, unreported additives, or spend money on a dish destined to fail.
Even though we know seafood is healthier for us, 80-90% of U.S. consumers did not meet their seafood dietary recommendations (USDA), which only eats 1.5 servings per week. For children, it's even worst. Seafood consumption by children has declined every year since 2007 to levels not seen since the early 1980s. (American Academy of Pediatrics)
