Pure Salmon lands Ocean Wise endorsement

27 March 2020, at 12:30am

Pure Salmon has received Ocean Wise endorsement for its land-based facility in Poland.

The facility is co-owned by AquaMaof Aquacultures Technologies Ltd and 8F Asset Management Pte. Ltd's private equity funds. It is a fully-operational, land-based commercial facility that produces and markets Atlantic salmon of 4kg and above.

It also operates as research and training centre for AquaMaof and Pure Salmon - with the wider company looking to produce 260,000 tonnes of salmon annually in the long-term, with facilities planned for countries including Japan, the US and France.

Ocean Wise is a conservation programme that certifies those products that it regards as being ocean-friendly. The endorsement follows on from Pure Salmon obtaining ASC accreditation for responsibly farmed seafood earlier this month.

“We’re extremely excited to receive another endorsement that assures our commitment to producing sustainable fish,” says Eran Huppert, general director of Pure Salmon Poland. “Now, more than ever, we understand the importance of promoting a sustainable and disease-free environment, especially in fish production, and we have been making every effort to achieve just that. These certificates are confirmation that we are providing a safe, traceable environment that is also environmentally-friendly.”
