Transparency is crucial for the future of Sustainable fisheries in order to eliminate Illegal, unreported or unregulated fishing practices and be able to trust the quality of the products.

At Pacifical we share this vision and believe it is crucial that we can follow our tuna all the way from ocean, fishing vessel, producer and retailer to your supermarket.
With our traceability platform, tailored to the unique requirements of the tuna industry we gather all relevant data from moment of catch till delivery of the final end-product. We offer a variety of traceability solutions to our partners, to support their journey in leveraging transparency to increase consumer engagement and product value.
