Seanamico Black Tiger Shrimps Certified Sustainable

15 July 2014

VIET NAM - Farmed black tiger shrimps from Seanamico have now been certified sustainable by Friend of the Sea. Seanamico’s products can now proudly display the international Friend of the Sea sustainability seal of approval.

The farming site is located in the coastal area of Ca Mau province in Viet Nam. From an environmental perspective, Seanamico conducts low impact aquaculture which complies with all Friend of the Sea standards. The farming activity generates no critical alteration to the surrounding ecosystems, such as the mangrove forest. An advanced system of monitoring screens and sluice gates prevents escape of farmed shrimps and entrance of other organisms.

“We believe that Friend of the Sea is the best recognized aquaculture sustainability standard”, claims Mr Ngo Minh Hien of Seanamico. “The achievement of this certification is a very clear message to our customers about our commitment”.

“Seanamico is a very good example of sustainable seafood production,” commented Paolo Bray, Director of Friend of the Sea.
