Seabass and Seabream from Cyprus are Certified Sustainable

  (CYPRUS, 8/26/2013)

Kimagro Fishfarming Ltd – is a high quality seabass and seabream producer from Limassol, Cyprus and has been thoroughly audited by an independent Certification Body, according to Friend of the Sea requirements. It has been certified as being fully compliant with strict Friend of the Sea criteria for aquaculture at sea.

Environmental Impact Assessments were carried out in 2004 before the Sites were developed and in 2007. The Sites are located offshore, near the commercial port of Limassol on sandy-muddy seabed.

The characteristics and high quality of the fish are primarily due to the environment, good production methods and good harvesting practices.

The sea environment is oligotrophic with a strong upwelling from the deep sea. EIAs and Monitoring Studies have shown that no traces of the Farm activity are recorded at 100m from the cages.

 Tony Kimonides

The offshore cages have a density of fish of 12-15 kg per sqmt and are equipped with video cameras to immediately identify escapes and to monitor the feeding habits of the fish.

Cages are covered with special nets that prevent birds from getting entangled. Kimagro does not use antifouling paints as nets are cleaned effectively with a modern water blaster.

Aside from being free of antifoulants, the company does not use any hormones, antibiotics, GMO’s or land animal proteins.

The Farm daily records feed consumption ratios. Fish is fed ad libitum so that its growth and metabolism simulates the natural rhythms, thus ensuring animal welfare, which is a priority at Kimagro.

"We are particularly fond of the Friend of the Sea certification, as it allows us to independently confirm our full engagement to sustainability at an international level" comments 
Tony Kimonides, who is Founder and Managing Director of Kimagro.
