I have just heard the sad news that Bumble Bee has closed down the last American Sardine packing plant. Now we will have to find our sardines from other countries like China.
What a shame.

Response from Bumble Bee: “Due to the continued reduction of catch limits, Bumble Bee Foods has made the difficult decision to cease production at their Prospect Harbor plant by April 16, 2010. Since 2004, total allowable catch levels have decreased 50 percent. Scientists and regulators cannot predict if there will be sustainable herring populations to allow increased catch levels. Since Bumble Bee acquired the facility in 2004, they have put significant effort into working with both state and federal agencies to keep the plant operational but now, the decrease in fish availability prohibits them from meeting production levels in Prospect Harbor that would assure the plant’s long-term viability. As the North American leader in shelf-stable seafood, and the largest branded sardine company, they will continue to offer Beach Cliff sardines as part of our product portfolio. Sardine production will continue at other Bumble Bee facilities.”

I don’t see the closing of the plant as a bad thing if there are not sustainable levels of fish able to be caught there.
