Sustainability

Sustainable seafood is seafood from either fished or farmed sources that can maintain or increase production in the future without jeopardizing the ecosystems from which it was acquired. In general, the slower the fish grows the more vulnerable it is to overfishing.

  • Minimal Carbon footprint - Shipping, freezing and storing fish requires the use of vast amounts of energy. The GFA zero discharge aquaculture 100% closed system can be located near every major market reducing our carbon footprint.
  • No Chemicals and No antibiotics - the water are kept in clean condition using a unique process of water treatment based on biological filtration.
  • No effluent / Waste - our unique filters treat 100% of the water which are reused again when the filtration is completed.

 

At GFA, our sustainability vision is focused on water conservation and energy savings technologies for the local market. We believe that the future of our food consumption will belong to environmentally friendly and sustainable production driven by economic sense for high quality healthy product.

The main aspect of the GFA systems is its Water Conservation and Pollution preventing. Our production system allows the production of marine fish species in 100% recycled water systems. 1 kg of grain needs 1,000 liters of water to grow to maturity. Our unique system enables us to produce 1 Kg protain (within the fish) in less than 10 liters loss due to evaporation and do not discharge any waste water or pollution in the process.

Another key aspect is Feed Practices . GFA systems that grow the fish in land based tanks, enable the improvement of feed usage. Our system allows, in comparison to sea cages (nets) and open pools, to better managment of the Food Conversion Ratio (FCR). Less food for each Kg of production means lower production costs and a real help for protecting our environment.
