We are committed to achieving a triple bottom line: we hire only the most talented people and help them to be successful both in and out of work; we are environmentally conscious, helping to preserve and restore fisheries through the Lateral Line Foundation and we strive to grow our company and provide healthy returns to our shareholders; Though our 2% for the Fish initiative we give 2% of our gross sales to the Lateral Line Foundation, utilizing the money to conduct fisheries research projects, grassroots conservation initiatives, and work in conjunction with like foundations. We also give to other non-profits that share our vision and values. We build conservation themes and responsibility into all we do.
Lateral Line is a founding member of the bCoproration classification of businesses which sets out to set new standards for social and environmental performance. In addition, we believe in supporting our local community and purchase local goods and serves when possible.
Sometimes these philosophies lead us to spending more or making it harder then it might otherwise be had we simply sought out the lowest price, but we believe the inherent benefits of striving for a triple bottom line far outweigh a few extra bucks we could have saved.

We prefer to think of our "customers" more as "partners"; without your support Lateral Line would not exist and we strive to provide only the highest level of service. If there is ever a question you can reach us at: help@LateralLine.net.
