International seafood supplier, Anova Seafood, has announced that it will be selling Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified Fujian albacore tuna as part of its “The Sea and We” sustainability range.

Anova formally launched its Fiji albacore range at the European Seafood Exposition (ESE), which took place in Brussels last month. The company will offer the tuna as of June in both fresh and frozen form.

Hendrik Colpaert, unit manager of marketing and retail, Anova, said: “In the seafood industry, sustainably caught tuna has been long awaited. There is increasing demand of consumers and professionals for sustainably caught and fully traceable MSC certified tuna.”

He added: “These will be the first sustainable tuna steaks that perfectly match with the needs of the consumer in terms of size, shape and quality. There will also be sashimi quality tuna defrosted for the fresh market.”

The Fiji albacore tuna longline fishery, which operates in the South Pacific Ocean, was MSC certified in December 2012, after three years of trying to meet MSC standards.
