ECHEBASTAR obtained the MSC Certification for the fishing of skipjack tuna, in the Indian Ocean, at the end of 2018. It was the first tropical tuna fishery using FADs in the world to be awarded the MSC seal, the leading independent organization that certifies sustainable and well-managed fisheries around the world.
The MSC label guarantees the consumer that our tuna catch and production is obtained according to the highest principles of responsible fishing. Thus, Echebastar reaffirms its strategy to achieve excellence in the sustainable fishing of tuna.
