Fish farming company takes over catfish processor - THE NETHERLANDS - Fishion Processing has announced that it aims to take over Walraven Visverwerking BV., the largest Dutch Catfish processor.

Fishion Processing is a Joint Venture between ZonAquafarming BV. and Anova Food BV. These two companies are the driving forces behind the farming of Tilapia in The Netherlands.

The main aim of this alliance is to reduce the distance between producer and consumers. All products will be marketed by the Anova organisation ensuring the best and fastest service. Fishion is the trade name of a supply chain from feed supply, farmers and processors up to sales into the market. Partners in this alliance co-ordinate and produce up to the market requirements. Issues like quality assurance and feed control are monitored throughout the chain.

By combining the processing of Tilapia and Catfish the efficiency in production will be optimised, Anova Food says in a statement. The fish is grown indoors in re-circulation systems, by local farmers. ZonAquafarming BV., with more than ten years of experience, is in charge of this whole process from breeding to harvesting.

The total fish consumption is growing consistently every year. Since wild catch is not likely to meet this growing demand in the near future, the Fishion alliance can provide a sustainable and traceable answer to a growing market demand. The target of Fishion is to increase the production of the current 4000 MT per annum to 10.000 MT within 3 4 years.
