Our fishing vessels use the purse seine fishing method to capture pelagic fish species that form shoals close to the surface. The fishing technique has a very low impact on the environment and has low levels of bycatch. The mesh is large enough to allow juvenile fish to escape.
Eco-friendly and people-friendly
The fishing operation is focused on conducting business in an eco-friendly and people-friendly manner. Preserving the environment and its resources by building a socially responsible and sustainable business is at the core of our values.
In line with legislation
We strive to comply with all relevant legislation regarding the operation of a fishing vessel in South African waters, such as the provisions of the Marine Pollution Act, the Marine Living Resources Act and the Merchant Shipping Act.
The fishery has been independently assessed against the MarinTrust standard. MarinTrust is the leading independent business to business certification programme for the marine ingredient value chain. It follows the FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries and assures buyers of our products that they have been properly segregated from non-approved when being processed, which is key for traceability purposes.
