Progressively responsible seafood sourcing can certainly be a challenge. While there are existing fisheries and aquaculture operations that are widely recognized as sustainable, there are still significant challenges facing some of the most popular seafood choices on the market today.
Blueyou Ltd. strives to be at the forefront of transforming global seafood production towards a more sustainable future. The company believes in the potential of consumer markets to help facilitate this challenging transformation.
Implementing more sustainable fishery and aquaculture practices by means of market incentives is their core area of focus and expertise. Blueyou develops projects that house elements essential to their credibility including the use of third party auditors and product traceability.
A primary example of this work is demonstrated by our Selva Shrimp® program. The first farmed shrimp from Southeast Asia to receive a "Best Choice" rating from the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch program. Also recognized in Canada as an Ocean Wise recommendation, and a SeaChoice "Best Choice", this premium quality black tiger prawn is naturally raised in mangrove forests and offers not only a sustainable product, but creates a direct link between consumers and smallholder farming communities in Southeast Asia.
Along with their proprietary program and associated brand development, we offer our services to help develop and refine new or existing Fishery and Aquaculture Improvement Programs (FIP/AIP) worldwide. Foodservice, hospitality, and seafood distributors can also benefit from their services, which include development of seafood policies and sourcing criteria along with the analysis of existing seafood offerings. Seafood producers can take advantage of their understanding of various NGO models to have their products assessed, assist with the improvement of seafood supply chains, or perhaps impact assessments of seafood production.
