Mahi-mahi fishing is one of the most important in the country. On October 1st, the 2020 - 2021 fishing season began, and thus, months of hard work in our fresh frozen resources processing plants to satisfy our clients.
Mahi-mahi represents the second most crucial artisanal fishery in Peru, and its fishing employs more than 4,000 fishermen along the entire Peruvian coast. This species, known in other countries as dorado or perico, is an essential export since our country has contributed around 50% of the world's landings in recent years.
Due to the global health crisis by COVID-19, this new season represents an extra effort and challenges. In Coinrefri SRL, we have been following the strictest guidelines and protocols to safeguard our workers' health and guarantee the safety of our products.
At Coinrefri SRL, we are committed to Mahi-mahi sustainability and the achievement of its international MSC certification. We have strengthened our support towards the Mahi-mahi Fishery Improvement Project in collaboration with other companies in the industry and the WWF Peru organization within the conglomerate for the Peru Mahi Alliance purpose.
Our recent efforts have promoted the prompt enactment of a Regulation for the Mahi-mahi Fishery Management in Peru, promoting concrete actions to train and provide tools to our artisanal fishermen to properly handle turtles caught as bycatch while fishing for Mahi-mahi and not generate damage to the ecosystem.
The trust of our clients is a fundamental basis in our vision and business strategy. For years, we have been obtaining and renewing different certifications and qualifications that guarantee the quality, safety, health management at work, and social responsibility in our organization.
In Coinrefri SRL, we guarantee the required sanitary protocols, generating more confidence in our work team and our clients, who have accompanied us during all these years. This allows us to maintain leadership in processing and exporting this valuable resource called Mahi-mahi and supporting this fishery to be sustainable.
