Maldives: More Maldivian Support for Sustainable One-by-one Tuna Fisheries February 15,2017   |  Source: The Fish Site

Maldivian tuna supply chain companies Ensis Fisheries PVT Ltd and Maldives Quality Seafood PVT Ltd have become the latest Members of the International Pole & Line Foundation (IPNLF), the non-profit association that is committed to developing and supporting responsible one-by-one tuna fisheries and supply chains.
Ensis is a major tuna processing company that exports fresh and frozen products to the international market. The company is committed to environmentally responsible fishing practices and primarily sources its tuna from local one-by-one fishers (pole-and-line and handline tuna fisheries). In addition to its fresh tuna business, the company is building a facility to produce shelf-stable products which will be operational in the fourth-quarter of 2017.

Commenting on Ensis’ membership of IPNLF, Mohamed Waseem Ismail, Managing Director of Ensis, says, “We are delighted to join the International Pole & Line Foundation membership network – their support of the Maldives one-by-one fisheries has made a tremendous, positive impact on the local fisheries and the businesses and coastal communities they support. We look forward working with IPNLF to develop and support one-by-one fisheries and ensure they get the recognition they deserve.” Maldives Quality Seafood (MQS)
