Fisheries Traceability Verification System

Supporting suppliers of FCF to implement a traceability system that is verifiable by a credible third-party.

Traceability is one of the most important components in ensuring fishery sustainability. It enhances the company’s transparency as well as internal management systems, which ultimately deters IUU fishing from appearing in the supply chain. FCF endeavours to work with our suppliers to demonstrate traceability management from fishing set identification on Purse Seiners to delivery of fish to processing plants. 

FCF’s  traceability system includes a FCF Sustainability Program (FSP), that has been recognised by world-known Testing, Inspection & Certification (TIC) leader Bureau Veritas (BV). BV regularly conducts audits and evaluations to ensure FSP is well managed and recorded from the fishing set to delivery. 

Currently there are about 50 vessels, including both fishing and carrier vessels, under FSP.

Applicable Species: Skipjack tuna (Katsuwonus pelamis), Yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares)
