Crate Expectations

Since September 2023, we started to collect logos from fish crates we find on the beaches, and our idea is to bring them back to their owners with an invitation to collaborate in making the ocean plastic-free.

This is a list of the different companies and brands we have found so far:

Caley FisheriesScotland5-8 Bridge Street, Peterhead, United KingdomPhone number: +44 1779 479772 Facebook profile has not been used since 2020, so may be worth giving a call.9BB5C0D8-3417-46CD-8B40-B0EEFAF330AC
LHD ShetlandShetlandMair's Quay, Holmsgarth, Lerwick, Shetland, ZE10PWTelephone: +44 (0)1595 693768 LHD Shetland is not actually a fishing company, rather, they supply fishing equipment to many fisheries across the Shetland Island archipelago. LHD Shetland is currently agents for over 65 vessels based across the Shetlands, and the neighbouring Orkney Islands. Despite not being a specific fishery, they are still heavily involved in the fishing industry. Their main industry is supporting pelagic and whitefish trawlers (as well as scallop, crab, and small day boats). Constructing a productive conversatio with LHD Shetland could lead to less plastic pollution being created from Shetland and Orkney as a whole which would be awesome!5754CDEE-9F28-4762-936D-153244A4A987
Delfi SeafoodDenmarkTaarupgaard Alle - 8331 Loegstrup, DenmarkTelephone: +45 9631 0670 Delfi(at)defliseafood.dk Delfi Seafoods is a seafood supplier from Denmark. Their website actually states 'sustainable resoures' with 'full traceability'... do we thnk they would be able to trace their fishing crate to our container in Heroy? Delfi Seafoods 'Mission and Vision' section of their website states 'The activities in Delfi A/S must be based on products of high quality, SUSTAINABLE FISHERIES, staff training, motivation, and high ethical focus'. This makes them an attractive partner to work with as our values seem to be aligned.55404720-1FC6-449B-BCBD-3C7A0D22FE53
Royal GreenlandGreenlandQasapi 4, Postboks 1073, 3900 NuukTelephone: +299 361 300 The website for Royal Greenland fisheries has an entire section abou sustainability. Supposedly, the entire business model of Royal Greenland is focused around sustainable fishing, following the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. It seems however, that a lot of the sustainability focus of Royal Greenland is on ethical and sustainable fishing, and not much on reducing plastic pollution. There is actually an entire article on Royal Greenland's website surrounding fishing crates, and he recycling potential of them. This reveals that they are actually changing the type of fishing crate they use, to replace the materials with a new mono-material. In the mean time, they are actually working with a Polish company to repair the fishing tubs, so that they can be used again. There is a great photo on the website of hundreds of fishing tubs like the one we found. The contact details for the Corporate Sustainability Manager (this would be a ggreat person to contact to help us) Malik Hegelund Olsen Tel: +299 36 1302 Email: malo@royalgreenland.com99BAC171-3155-4BF5-8FE8-967C79D24B3D

BFP Eastern claims to not only have estensive knowledge of North Sea Fishing, but also North Sea Oil, Gas, and Energy. So this may represent a major partner o work with for holisitic environmental management strategies.
ÅlesundfiskNorwayMerchant Sgt. 37, NO-6005 Ålesund, NorwayTelephone: +47 70 10 35 00 Ålesundfisk claims that 'the worlds changes - and so we with it!', which perhaps makes them a constructive partner to work with, if they want to create a sustainable future for both the fishing industry and the planet.48006599-B2F9-48EC-AF23-612055160E50
