The nerve center of fishing activities in the Indian Ocean
Its new fishing zone since 2008, this region of the Indian Ocean is the hub of SAPMER’s tuna fishing activity. All processes related to Tuna and Skipjack products are therefore initiated in Mauritius, from where these natural products are later shipped. Fishing activities are conducted far offshore, where the natural and wild tuna can be found. The fish are deep-frozen at an ultra-low temperature of -40°C as soon as they are taken out of the water for a fresher than fresh quality..
A tuna valorization plant in Mauritius
Our latest generation factory called Mer des Mascareignes (in collaboration with the IBL group) began her activity in 2008. The SAPMER Ahi tuna and Skipjack superior quality pieces are thus cut out without being defrosted and remain at a constant temperature of -40°C to enable the loins, center-cut loins, steaks and fillets to remain perfectly fresh. This equipment also affords significant stocking volumes in cold-storage rooms at -40 degrees Celsius.
The starting point for worldwide distribution
Once our SAPMER products have been valorizated in our plant, they are shipped from Mauritius to international markets in Europe, Northern America, Japan, China and South Africa. SAPMER products, besides being destined to chefs and restaurant professionals who particularly appreciate the freshness and premium quality of these products, can also be found in major retail stores.
