Tropic Frozen Foods only uses long-line fish as raw material. They ensure full traceability, from the catching vessel to the final product. Purse seine netted and gill netted products are not used in any of our factories. Purse seining in Sri Lankan waters is actually prohibited by law. Tropic Frozen Foods employs methods that ensure all fishing is turtle, dolphin, and bird friendly. They only process fish caught through deep-sea fishing and surface long-line methods to prevent seabird fatalities. Their lines are carried out into deep waters, away from reefs and rocks, to avoid catching sharks and turtles. Dolphin catches are not recorded, as long-line fishing methods do not attract them.
