As we approach the year-end and the end of our 18th year in operation; we'd like to take a moment to thank you for your support throughout the year and wish you and your family a joyful and warm Holiday Season. 

Your support and feedback helped us reach a number of milestones in 2013, which in the end, allowed us to meet your expectations and grow with you.

Throughout the year, our passionate farmers and fishermen around the world, work and monitor each farm with the goal to bring you a pure, sustainable, chem-free product. This year, we expanded our BAP certified Tilapia operations in Colombia. In February, our partner tilapia farm, Piscicola New York received BAP (Best Aquaculture Practices) certification at the plant level; followed by Piscicola El Rosario, who received BAP certification at the farm level in August.
Following a successful seafood show in March, we expanded our product offerings and were honored to introduce Cold Water Fisheries Steelhead Trout and Norwegian Organic Salmon to our product line.

After months of hard work, the Monterrey Bay Aquarium recognized our sustainable operations and published an updated Seafood Watch - Seafood Guide in which our Tilapia farmed in Ecuador was the first one in Central and South America listed as "Best Choice" of seafood to purchase. 

All our expansions and achievements in the past 18 years, wouldn't be possible without the continued support from loyal customers like you and instrumental team players such as; logistics (domestic and foreign), truckers, warehouses, customs brokers, sales, marketing, accounting, NGOs, producers and processors. Thank you all for your undivided support, we look forward to working with each of you in 2014.

From our team to yours, we wish you a Happy Holiday and Happy New Year!

Q: How can salmon navigate back to their birth place?
A: Salmon find their home waters by sense of smell which is even more keen than a dog or bear. They also rely on ocean currents, tides and the gravitational pull of the moon to navigate their way through the ocean back to the stream or river where they were born.
