Silla achieves FOS certification
The purse seiner vessels of South Korean company, Silla Co., have been found to comply with the Friend of the Sea’s sustainability criteria following a third party audit.
Six Silla purse seiner vessels catching mainly skipjack and yellowfin in the Western Central Pacific have been approved according to the international certification’s sustainability requirements.
"We are extremely proud of having obtained the Friend of the Sea certification,” said a representative of Silla’s management. “This is in line with our continuous engagement in marine conservation and social accountability.”
The certified tuna comes from stocks which are not overfished and is fished by means of selective fishing gears and following sustainable fishery policies. The Friend of the Sea audits also ensure appropriate waste and energy management, dolphin-friendly and fish aggregating device practices together with social accountability.
Founded in Seoul in South Korea, in 1967, Silla Co. has focused on tuna fishing with purse seines since 1990. As part as the Silla Cultural Scholarship Foundation, the company has helped 3,000 students to realise their potential over the past 40 years.
