US - The Institute for Marketecology (IMO) has inspected the Anova Food farm, processing facilities and feed used in the production of their ocean farm raised pompano, and has certified the pompano to meet IMO and AquaGAP standards.

IMO congratulated Anova Food on becoming the first company to achieve AquaGAP certification for Pompano. "This achievement recognises Anova Food's commitment to good management practices and the high quality of their products. IMO is proud to work with companies such as Anova Food to ensure the sustainable production of aquaculture products," said Kim Bedford of IMO. AquaGAP certification on farm raised seafood aims to ensure consumer trust in quality, sustainably produced seafood products. Certification from AquaGAP assures:

  • transparency of origin
  • quality and food safety at each stage of production
  • good aquaculture farming to maintain or improve the health of surrounding ecosystems
  • principles of corporate social responsibility and commitment towards local communities
  • animal welfare
