The farm was evaluated against strict quality standards for maintaining healthy populations and ecosystems and for product traceability

Lamasur Trout Farm Certified Sustainable

  (PANAMA, 5/24/2012)

Tropical Aquaculture’s Rainbow Trout farm, Lamasur, was certified sustainable by the Institute for Marketecology (IMO) late last month.

Located in Bajo Mono, in the town of Boquete, Chiriquí, Panama, Lamasur is a vertically integrated company that has been exclusively producing Rainbow Trout since 1993.

Lamasur is known for consistently producing high quality products

The farm was evaluated against strict quality standards for maintaining healthy populations and ecosystems and for product traceability. Among other criteria, the auditor verified compliance with the non-use of antibiotics, added growth hormones, genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and poultry and mammalian by-products in feed. Their husbandry practices were recognized as sustainable as the impacts of farming on the environment have been minimized by protecting surrounding habitats, monitoring water quality to prevent pollution and responsibly sourcing feed ingredients.

Since their beginnings, Lamasur has been committed to the care of the environment through a protection program in the Parque Nacional Volcán Barú, one of the protected areas in that zone. The farm is responsible for protecting the flora and fauna of the surrounding 2,500 acres. Additionally, they have a cleaning program for the river Río Caldera with the town of Boquete, the fire department, the National Environmental Authority and the National Chamber of Civic Protection.

 Lamasur trout are raised in the most ecologically friendly manner possible

Regarding social responsibility, the company has not only focused on the well-being of their employees but they also maintain yearly donation programs to charity organizations such as the Casa Esperanza ("House of Hope").

About Lamasur

With over 15 years experience in rainbow trout production, Tropical's Panamanian trout farm, Lamasur, is known for consistently producing high quality products.

Tropical rainbow trout tastes so fresh, you'll think it's straight from your favorite crystal-clear mountain brook

Located on the outskirts of Baru Volcano National Park (at nearly 6,000 ft), cool mountain temperatures create an ideal environment for trout aquaculture.

Monitored by both Panamanian and U.S. certifying bodies, these trout are raised in the most ecologically friendly manner possible. They are raised in hand-dug earthen raceways, fed by an abundance of fresh mountain water. As with all of Tropical’s farms, effluents are strictly monitored to protect neighboring ecology. The company does not use chemicals, antibiotics or mammal proteins during production.

Quality control experts monitor every step of production; Lamasur plant is 100 percent HACCP compliant. The trout are delivered fresh, never frozen to three ports of entry.
