sustainability traceability

Our philosophy of fishing Sustainably and with full Traceability underpin all our Fishing activities.

“We fish in accordance to the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) guidelines.”

Working in partnership with a small team of high-profile scientists, who are EU and UK experts in the field of fishing management and monitoring, we constantly strive to find innovative solutions to protect our fishing environment and maintain our fisheries.

“Our fishing methods vary depending on the species being fished.”

drop line fishingRed Snapper are fished environmentally and with the collaboration of our scientist by long line or drop line. Only large circle hooks are used on our lines to ensure that fish are caught alive and to protect birds and turtles from being caught in them. The setting of the line and hooks is performed automatically by machine. Weights are integrated into the line that cause it to sink immediately; before any diving birds can get to it. The line and hooks are hauled onboard quickly to ensure that birds do not get caught.

Our boats are 15 metre boats designed to fish in the pristine waters of the Indian Ocean. The boats will go out for approximately 10 days at a time.

“Once on board not a minute is wasted and the processing of the catch begins …”

The Demersal Species we fish, process and distribute include Grouper, Red Snapper, Sea Bream and Emperor.
