ATLANTIC FISHERIES, LLC COLLABORATES WITH MAR ANDINO PERU S.A.C. (MAPSAC) TO REPRESENT MAR ANDINO BRAND IN NORTH AMERICA
MIAMI – March 4, 2019– Atlantic Fisheries, LLC, fresh division of the Sea Delight Group based in Miami, FL will be representing Mar Andino Perú S.A.C. MAPSAC product Steelhead Trout in the Canadian market.
MAPSAC’s operations have not used antibiotics in floating cages since 2015 and are actively working to turn all their hatcheries to be antibiotic free by 2021. The steelhead trout is farmed in the lakes of Choclococha and Punrun in the Andean mountains of Peru and are in very remote areas, with no cities, towns or industrial activity nearby. Mar Andino can have more controlled sanitary protocols thanks to the absence of other producers; helping reduce risk of diseases and allowing them to produce the highest quality trout in the market today.
“We look forward to working with the team at Atlantic Fisheries, LLC,” said Eduardo Kipreos, Executive President. We are confident that their knowledge of the North American fresh and frozen seafood market will help us expand our Mar Andino brand and introduce a high-quality farm raised product not only in Canada, but also in the USA.”
“Our customers not only care about our high-quality seafood products, but also care about the impact sourcing practices have on our environment and the people that fish and farm these products,” said Eugenio Sánchez, President. “We are excited to collaborate with Mar Andino because their innovative farming techniques have allowed them to produce a superior product with low impact in the environment while contributing to the local community’s livelihoods. Their farming operations have provided employment opportunities to more than 200 Quechua members in the surrounding community. They have also contributed to infrastructure development, thus providing child-care services as well as technical assistance in the raising of Alpacas, another important protein of commercial value in this community.”
MAPSAC has now three farm sites, the other two in Lake Punrun and their processing plant is in Lima, Peru. Gordon Ramsey’s Hell’s Kitchen All Star season 17 Chef Robyn Almodovar will be preparing delicious samples at the Seafood Expo North America. You can find this tasting at Sea Delight’s Booth #3323.
