Sustainability is at the core of every choice we make
At the Kingfish Company we focus on high quality
production with the lowest environmental impact.
This environmental focus is put into practice by efforts such as using 100% green electricity and installing custom made heat exchangers, as well as in our responsible use of natural Oosterschelde water in the basins where we further purify the water on arrival and filter it again before it is returned back to the sea. Our commitment to animal welfare goes hand in hand with our sustainability commitment, and we are proud to provide the best possible living conditions for our fish resulting in a high quality and healthy product for our consumers.
Green, renewable electricity
Low impact on
To grow a high quality product, our fish must thrive in the most optimal conditions.
It starts with fresh North Sea water flowing through a pristine nature reserve marine estuary. Then we make it even better: our advanced system purifies, enriches and adapts the water to the Yellowtail's optimal conditions.
Working closely with some of the world's leading equipment suppliers and engineering companies, we have access to proprietary first hand expertise regarding the requirements and demands of the Yellowtail in land-based recirculation systems. This has resulted in Kingfish Zeeland’s production facility, which has been designed to achieve levels of control, safety, reliability and sustainability not currently available in alternative production systems.
Fresh marine water is drawn at high replacement rates, purified, oxygenated and meticulously monitored and controlled to create optimal temperature, light and water conditions for the Yellowtail, resulting in healthy, strong and apparently happy fish.
Substantial efforts and costs have been incurred in order to assure that our operation is safe and healthy for our customers, stress-free and humane to our fish, and careful to protect the nature that surround us.
