ACTEMSA markets mainly tuna and tuna loins, as well as pelagic species.

Actemsa Achieves Certification for Sustainable Tuna Sourcing

  (SPAIN, 11/7/2018)

Spanish import export seafood company ACTEMSA achieves Friend of the Sea certification for traded skipjack, yellowfin and bigeye tuna.

All ACTEMSA’s certified tuna originates from pole and line and purse seine fleets already approved by Friend of the Sea for their sustainable fishing practices. These fishing methods are selective and do not affect the seabed. On-board observers verify the compliance with sustainable fishing practices and live release of endangered species if any is accidentally bycaught.
 
ACTEMSA's fishing methods are selective and do not affect the seabed.
 

Dedicated to the global import and export of frozen fish and processed tuna, ACTEMSA is one of the major driving companies of the Polígono Industrial de Tomada in Galicia occupying an area of 12,000 square meters. During the years, ACTEMSA has established itself as main hub for seafood from sustainable fisheries at international level thanks to its strategic alliance with world leaders in the canning sector, and by working closely with its Brazilian subsidiary, Industrias Alimenticias Leal Santos, all Friend of the Sea approved companies.

 

The main activity of ACTEMSA is the import and export of fish.


“I have collaborated with ACTEMSA for the past 30 years on conservation of the marine habitat,” explains Paolo Bray, Founder and Director of Friend of the Sea, “starting with the Dolphin-Safe project and now as part of the Friend of the Sea certification. Its engagement has increased over the years and it is now part of ACTEMSA’s environmental policy.”

 

ACTEMSA mainly imports and markets tuna and tuna loins, from markets as varied and distant as Latin America, Africa and Asia, which then markets and exports to canneries of the national market, the European Union and third countries.

 

“We are committed to the protection of the environment, the maintenance of marine biodiversity and the conservation of marine resources. We believe that being certified Friend of the Sea will provide certainty for our customers and final consumers that our products come from sustainable resources,” comments Nuria Noal from Actemsa.

 

The products and their origin are examined in situ by independent bodies of international certification, following the strict sustainability criteria of Friend Of The Sea

Actemsa’s Friend of the Sea certified products are frozen raw tuna (Thunnus albacares, Thunnus obesus and Katsuwonus pelamis), frozen and refrigerated cooked tuna loins (Thunnus albacares, Thunnus obesus and Katsuwonus pelamis) and frozen and refrigerated tuna flakes (Thunnus albacares, Thunnus obesus and Katsuwonus pelamis).
 
ACTEMSA facilities, located in the A Tomada Industrial Estate, have an area of 12,000 m2.
