Fish Farmer - - News European -

LAND based sal­mon farm com­pany Pure Sal­mon has achieved Aqua­cul­ture Ste­ward­ship Coun­cil (ASC) cer­ti­fi­ca­tion for its orig­i­nal, Pol­ish site.

Pure Sal­mon Poland, lo­cated near War­saw and one of the first sal­mon land based farms to achieve the stan­dard, is co-owned by Is­raeli RAS pi­o­neer AquaMaof Aqua­cul­ture Tech­nolo­gies and 8F As­set Man­age­ment.

For­merly Global Fish, it op­er­ates as a com­mer­cial farm, pro­duc­ing about 600 tonnes of mar­ket size fish of 4kg and above, and also as a train­ing ground and R&D cen­tre, to trial AquaMaof’s re­cir­cu­lat­ing aqua­cul­ture sys­tems tech­nol­ogy.

It is the first of a se­ries of fa­cil­i­ties be­ing de­vel­oped by Pure Sal­mon and 8F As­set Man­age­ment, with ad­di­tional projects un­der­way in Ja­pan, France, Amer­ica, China, South East Asia and Africa.

Pure Sal­mon an­nounced last month that its lat­est farm would be built in Boulogne-Sur-Mer in France, pro­duc­ing 10,000 tonnes of sal­mon a year (see story right).

The com­pany has a global am­bi­tion to pro­duce a com­bined 260,000 tonnes of sal­mon a year, us­ing AquaMaof’s RAS tech­nol­ogy and de­sign.

Eran Hup­pert, CEO of Pure Sal­mon Poland, said: ‘We’re thrilled to an­nounce that af­ter a lengthy and suc­cess­ful au­dit we’ve re­ceived the ASC cer­ti­fi­ca­tion. With en­vi­ron­men­tal aware­ness grow­ing among our clients and con­sumers, it was very im­por­tant for us to ob­tain this cer­ti­fi­ca­tion to back our com­mit­ment to pro­duc­ing the high­est qual­ity fish in the most re­spon­si­ble way.’
