peruvianThe Peruvian company Acuacultura y Pesca Group (Acuapesca) has been confirmed Friend of the Sea certified for scallops from sustainable aquaculture. After an independent assessment audit Acuapesca was found compliant with Friend of the Sea strict criteria of sustainability.Acuapesca has been operating since 1989 in the remote and pristine areas of Guaynumá Bay and Nunura Beach with 5 farms and one processing plant. Water parameters are checked periodically. The development of the facilities has not damaged critical ecosystems. The species (Argopecten purpuratus) is a native species, whose broodstocks are captured in the bay and induced to spawn in laboratory, for later reintroduction in the bay to continue the growth process. The scallops are grown in long line cages.
Acuapesca Group has also been audited according to Friend of the Sea social accountability requirements.
“We are proud of being confirmed Friend of the Sea”, comments José Luis Bellina Kohler of Acuapesca. “In accordance with our environmental policy and strategy, Acuapesca will continue with further investments in sustainable aquaculture, in order to preserve the resources for future generations”.
