Netuno Internacional has become the first farm in Brazil to gain Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) certification.

After an independent, third-party assessment conducted by Control Union Peru, Netuno was awarded ASC certification against the tilapia standard.

The achievement comes in the lead up to the 2016 Rio Olympic and Paralympic games.

The recent ASC certification means that Netuno can play a key role in providing responsibly sourced fish in some of the estimated 14 million meals to be served during the Games, an operation that has been described as the largest peacetime catering enterprise in the world.

“We are very excited to be able to offer the first certified responsible seafood from Brazil,” said Andre M. Brugger, Vice President of the Brazilian Institute for Sustainable Development (IABS) and sustainability advisor to Netuno.
