Responsible and sustainable aquaculture in natural environment

For more than 20 years we commit our social responsibility to the development of sustainable aquaculture.
In accordance with the Environmental Laws, our sites are listed as Classified Installations for Environmental Protection. To this end, we organize regular checks within a plan of environmental management that guarantees compliance with our waste regulations

Keen to work in a protected environment, ensuring the sustainability and success of their activity, our companies are using our technology to reprocess the lagoon effluent. These facilities also guarantee our activities a vital raw material quality: seawater
Our farms are located in protected areas (Natura 2000) and our employees are working every day in the middle of protected natural areas with preserved biodiversity.

Qualite environnementale 1 Qualite environnementale 2

We wanted to diagnose our practices in Sustainable Aquaculture through the process known as "3D approach" (Approach Sustainable Development) under the aegis Coopératives de France.

This approach aims to assume our responsibilities toward society and to include in our development the guarantee of economic performance and social and environmental responsibility.
At the end of this analysis, we decided to evaluate Social Responsibility of our company according to the standards of ISO 26000.


The working quality for our employees

Invest in r & d and develop training for all of our staff is a major focus for the sustainability of our activity

In addition to regulatory training for security, our companies provide their employees with training plans to ensure their personal progress in their careers (languages, IT, electricity...).

Implementing the HSCT commission (Health, Safety and Working Conditions) considering the risks and dangers faced by operators in the exercise of their professions, and providing appropriate action plans.
