Pure Salmon lands second sustainability certification

27 March 2020, at 12:30am

Pure Salmon has received Ocean Wise certification 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 certification follows on from Pure Salmon obtaining ASC accreditation for responsibly farmed seafood earlier this month.
