Good products and good employees for all,
and the motivation and determination to never give up

Food plays a vital role for us to survive. fishery resources must be especially sustainable among all of them. We also see fisheries as an important industry that must be passed on to future generations. Unlike land-based livestock and agricultural production, Fish industry is originated from catching invisible prey in the vast ocean. Our mission is to provide sustainable seafood products while adapting to the rapidly changing environment, and we operate with the ambition of transforming Japan’s fishing industry into a growth industry.

About ASC

ASC certification is a certification standard for responsible aquaculture that takes into consideration workers and local communities, as well as preventing pollution of the natural environment and overuse of resources. In order to sell products as ASC certified products, all businesses, not only processing but also distributors, must obtain CoC certification. The whole supply chain from the fishery or farm to the wholesaler needs to be certificated by ASC.
