Regal Springs Tilapia on Friday announced its Aquafina farm in Honduras is the first to be audited for and found compliant with the International Standards for Responsible Tilapia Aquaculture (ISRTA).

In the first of a series of pilot audits scheduled under an agreement between WWF and GlobalGAP, the farm was audited by the Institute for Marketecology (IMO) for compliance to the standards that were completed last year by the Tilapia Aquaculture Dialogue.

The tilapia supplier is also planning for additional audits at its other locations in the coming months.

“We are delighted that after many years of hard work by so many people involved in the process, the first tilapia farm has now been audited and was found compliant with the Aquaculture Dialogue standards, and congratulate Regal Springs, who have been highly involved in the Tilapia Aquaculture Dialogue, with this great result,” said Jose Villalon, WWF aquaculture program director.
