Tuna bearing the AENOR Conform Responsibly Fished Tuna seal is now available to Spanish customers.

Canning companies Garavilla and Sálica which own the Isabel and Campos brands respectively will be the first to offer the products guaranteeing that the tuna has been fished in a sustainable, socially responsible source.

The new certificate is the result of a project begun in 2016 by the members of the Spanish tuna fleet that are in OPAGAC. Supported closely by the Spanish government, the new certificate is the result of the merger of two of the tuna fleet’s voluntary initiatives; its fisheries improvement programme (FIP) and its push to have all OPAGAC/AGAC vessels certified by AENOR as compliant with the UNE standard for responsibly fished tuna by July 2017.

After the fleet was certified, AENOR began certifying tinned tuna processing and distribution firms’ chain of custody in March, closing the project circle and covering the process end to end, from ocean to table. AENOR Conform RFT certification is entirely voluntary and is open to any tuna vessel or canning company in the world.

The AENOR Conform RFT logo only goes on tins containing tuna fished by vessels certified under UNE 195006 (the responsibly fished tuna standard) and belonging to a comprehensive FIP.
