Other Media | SeafoodSource: Hai Trieu Food receives Friend of The Sea certification

Monday, November 22, 2021

Phan Thiet City, Vietnam-based Hai Trieu Food, has received Friend of the Sea (FOS) certification.

The company operates a seven-vessel fleet primarily fishing for yellowfin tuna via handline and pole-and-line fishing methods. It received FOS certification after adopting fishing practices that focus on minimizing juvenile catch, bycatch, and impact on the seabed, making hook-size adjustments, using non-entangling fish-aggregating devices, preventing the bycatch of endangered species, and refraining from shark-finning. The company has also pledged not to fish in protected marine areas.
