Responsible & Sustainable Aquaculture Practices for Fiji and Pacific Islands enabling Food Security & Natural Resource Preservation
by Pacific Ocean Culture Pte Ltd (Fiji) (Private sector)
Pacific Ocean Culture Pte Ltd is an integrated aquaculture company operating within the Central Region of Fiji, focusing on food security through our sustainable seafood vision for the domestic and export market.

Our objective is to support the regional initiatives for economic growth, improved health, education, employment and regeneration of the environment.
We will achieve this through sustainable production of seafood, training and employment in the rural region of Fiji and Vanuatu. This will be supported through our partnering with regional education and government institutes.

We specialise in finfish and crustacean production over both freshwater and seawater and our mandate is to create an international benchmark industry.
Responsible Aquaculture provides a reliable alternative to wild catch and ensures affordable nutritious food for communities throughout the region.

Initiating monitoring of the facility and its outcomes against international aquaculture best practices, tracking of production levels and employment levels, Pacific Ocean Culture Pte Ltd will be transparent in its practices.
