The aquaculture firm Tropical Aquaculture has expanded its tilapia network with the integration of two tilapia producers, GeneSeas Aquacultura Ltda and Netuno, to its farm cooperative.

Founded in 2001, GeneSeas is completely integrated with optimal practices throughout the entire process, from hatchery to processing.

Netuno was founded in 1993 and has established itself as a highly competitive company devoted to providing the highest quality products.

According to Tropical, both companies are mindful of the sources of the seafood they provide globally by minimizing waste and energy use in packaging, transportation, and storage.

GeneSeas has farms located in the Alha Solteira reservoir, which boarders the states of Sao Paulo and Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil and boasts over 800 cages spread between Santa Fe do Sul and Aparecida do Taboado.

As to its operations, Tropical highlights that in its farms, GeneSeas takes specific measures to ensure that tilapias are carefully nourished and that the feed volume ratio is exact so as to provide every tilapia with the necessary nutrients to grow into a strong and healthy fish; tablets with production management software are used during the feeding of the fish and throughout the growing cycle.

In addition, the cold chain is maintained from the moment the fish leaves GeneSeas' processing facility, to the moment it arrives to the city of Sao Paulo, where it is then flown directly to the United States.

The firm, which produces a sustainable and chemical free product while generating more than 500 direct jobs in Brazil, is committed to responsible farming and enrolled in the Global Aquaculture Alliance - iBAP program to certify their farming practices as responsible and sustainable.

“Due to the geographic diversity of our farms, we are better able to avoid unexpected obstacles or delays due to natural causes or transportation issues. For Tropical, expanding our tilapia network allows us the flexibility to substitute any day's harvest. Despite our complex structure, our tracking systems enable us to track every fish all the way back to the source,” Tropical Aquaculture pointed out in a press release.
