Earth Ocean Farms Receives Another Best Aquaculture Practices Certification
Earth Ocean Farms has announced that the Best Aquaculture Practices Certification - BAP has awarded it with the 2nd and 3rd farm and feed star, adding these two certifications to the star awarded earlier this year for its processing plant. This way, the company guarantees the Totoaba and Huachinango species that produce as sustainably farmed in submersible cages in the sea, off the coast of Baja California Sur, Mexico.
BAP is the only program that certifies every stage of the aquaculture process. It is an internationally recognized certification covering the full scope of seafood processing, including food safety and quality.
By moving far away from crowded coastal waters and sensitive ecosystems into the open ocean, Earth Ocean Farms operates in harmony with the natural surroundings.
"For the Earth Ocean Farms team, receiving this new certification is a great achievement, a big step forward; next, we will seek certification for our hatchery", commented Pablo Konietzko, CEO of Earth Ocean Farms.
"In addition, such certification is a guarantee for our customers, so when purchasing our products, they can be sure that our commitment to producing the freshest and highest quality fish, is backed by an international quality assurance standard."
Earth Ocean Farms is a company established in La Paz, B.C.S. - Mexico, which operates a marine fish reproduction and incubation hatchery, an open sea farm, and a processing plant. In the hatchery, it carries out optimal conditions for the reproduction and breeding of the Totoaba and Huachinango, until they reach their ideal size for transfer to its open sea farm. The fish are introduced in submersible cages at a depth of 30 to 50 meters, which offers a pristine natural environment and ideal conditions for their growth.
Earth Ocean Farms is proud that there has been no traceable impact to the marine environment around and that they not affect the wild totoaba populations nor the vaquita marina, which is also an endangered species.
As the world's population grows, so does the demand for fish. According to FAO, aquaculture already produces more than half of the fish consumed worldwide. Because wild capture fisheries cannot meet the population's demand, aquaculture is now the fastest-growing food production system in the world.
"Producing sustainable foods with high nutritional value provides the population with a healthy diet, a commitment we make with our products to contribute to the wellbeing of people and the environment in which we live," says Pablo Konietzko.
