BY JEALSA COMES FROM FISHERIES WITH «FIPs».

In the period between October 2018 – September 2019 more than half (54%), of the tuna processed by Jealsa has been caught by fishing vessels participating in comprehensive Fishery Improvement Projects of the fisheries where they operate (47% FIP grade A and 7% FIP grade C).

Jealsa, in an exercise of transparency and in compliance with its sustainability commitment, publicly reported its tuna purchases for the period between October 2018 – September 2019. More than half (54%) of the tuna processed by the company in these 12 months has been caught by fishing vessels involved in what are called, comprehensive Fishery Improvement Projects (FIPs).
In addition, 5% of all processed tuna is MSC certified, the world’s most recognised sustainability standard.

Analysing the suppliers for this period, 26% were companies participating in the ISSF, 12% were Data Check Companies, (companies that, without being full members of the ISSF, comply with all the audit requirements demanded by the ISSF) and 24% came directly from shipowners.

At Jealsa we work every day to increase the purchase volumes of; MSC tuna, tuna caught by fishing vessels involved in robust Fishing Improvement Projects (FIPs), and the ISSF member companies or companies that abide by the resolutions of the ISSF).
