Regal Springs Honduras Farm Receives BAP Certification
Regal Springs Tilapia is proud to announce their Honduras plant has been awarded the Global Aquaculture Alliance’s (GAA) Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certification.
Aquafinca Saint Peter Fish S.A. achieved the first BAP Certification in Honduras for their processing plant in San Francisco De Yojoa, Cortes. Aquafinca processes over 25,000 mt annually of both fresh and frozen tilapia primarily for the US market.
While we are pleased to be recognized as the leader in balanced, responsible aquaculture, our philosophy has always been to farm a premium product at minimum expense to the environment and communities in which we farm. It is our passion to farm well, as we have been responsibly farming from inception over 25 years ago.
In addition to the BAP certification, Regal Springs also holds several other certifications, in areas that include food safety and environmental and social responsibility. We are particularly proud that our farm in Indonesia was the first farm in the world to achieve the Aquaculture Stewardship Council’s (ASC) certification for both the farm operations as well as the Chain of Custody. Our Honduras farm likewise earned these same ASC certifications in October of this year.
Mexico, our newest operation, is in the process of achieving similar certifications.
