Docifish: 20-hectare pangasius farm to be certificated by ASC

Two pangasius farms with the tune of 20 hectares are expected to be granted ASC certificate in 2012. If they are certificated, 6,000 MT of raw pangasius per year – equivalent to 2,000 MT of finished products will be labeled ASC, Docifish Corporation (Docifish) reported.

In late 2010, the company was granted GlobalGAP certificate for its 5 ponds with the total area of 5 hectares which provide 1,500 MT of raw pangasius (500 MT of finished products). However, the supply of GlobalGAP-certificated pangasius only responded to a small part of Docifish’s demand of 6,000 MT of fish for export to the EU market per year. Therefore, the company strives to get certification for 100 percent of its pangasius farms to meet the requirements by its traditional partners and to follow the global trends.
