Sustainability, Traceability and Quality

At VS Seafood, we are very concerned about the health of the surrounding marine ecosystem, coastal communities and our planet.

We have implemented sustainable practices across every point of our supply chain. From using sustainable fishing techniques that make minimum or no negative impact on the existence of protected species like dolphins and corrals to ensuring wellbeing of coastal communities around us, sustainability is deeply interwoven with our operations.

The end consumer of our customers get to consume sustainably sourced wild seafood and feel good about their planet-friendly choice. Irrespective of rising costs and other challenges, we are determined to follow sustainable practices as we know that the benefits of sustainable fishing extend go a long way: they extend to livelihoods, human health as well as the environment.”
