Where does our fish originate?

Whether concerning tuna, sardines, salmon, mackerel, herring or anchovies, our fish is always caught in the wild,
in oceans all over the world, and all this while keeping a close watch on nature and sustainability.
As a result, a number of our products are “MSC certified” or permitted to use
the “Alaska Seafood” logo. Our tuna is “dolphin-friendly.”

Where does our fish originate?

How is our fish caught?

All types of Deepblue fish are caught in a responsible and sustainable manner, and
processed and packaged by certified manufacturers. Take our salmon, for example:

Fishing boats set sail!

Fishing boats in the northeastern part of the Pacific Ocean set sail in the early hours of the morning. The fishing technique that is used is called “Purse seine.”

A variety of conscientiously designed nets are used to ensure that the salmon is caught in a responsible manner.

Optimal freshness

The time between catching and canning is intentionally kept as short as possible. Once in the factory, the salmon is sorted, cleaned and canned. Fish that had been swimming in the sea in the morning is canned no more than sixteen hours later.

The speed of the process is an important factor in ensuring the nutritional value and taste of the fish.

The fish arrives in the Netherlands

As soon as the fish arrives in the Netherlands by cargo ship or by lorry from e.g. Spain or Portugal, it is immediately taken to one of various storage facilities, from which it is distributed to our customers. In this process we adopt the FIFO (first in, first out) system. Stored correctly, most cans have an expiration period of more than three years.

Create the tastiest dishes

Deepblue should be part of every kitchen that values fresh fish. Using our products, you can quickly and easily create a variety of responsible dishes.
