In 2019, we became the world’s first ASC certified producer of Seriola rivoliana. Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) is recognized as having the most exacting global standards for aquaculture; for this, we have been deeply involved in the multi-stakeholder process of developing ASC standards for marine fish. And as independent, third-party audits allow us to continue to grow as a company, we remain firmly committed to maintaining the ASC certification, and to achieve the Best Aquaculture Practices certification (BAP) in the near future.
Our fish is also certified by Ikejime Quality. Ikejime is a set of Japanese techniques used to harvest fish humanely, minimizing stress, maximizing its natural quality, and extending the product shelf life.
