Spanish trout producer becomes country's first ASC-certified farm

Piscifactoria de Alba obtained certification for its full production.

Spanish rainbow trout producer Piscifactoria de Alba, located in the northern region of Asturias, obtained Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) certification for its production at its three farming sites, Alba I, Alba II, and Alba III.

The producer provides farmed trout to companies in Spain and importers from EU countries including Belgium, Denmark and Germany.

With this recognition, the company becomes the first Spanish farm to achieve ASC certification.

“Currently, the European market is demanding companies to be more socially and environmentally responsible,” said Fidel Cabero, quality and food safety manager at Piscifactoria de Alba.

“Our company has been working for years to be respectful with our environment and for this reason we decided to pursue the ASC certification.”
