Two Spain-based processors on Tuesday added their names to the roster of brands that support the International Seafood Sustainability Foundation.

Conservas Garavilla S.A. and Jealsa Rianxeira S.A. both successfully completed an independent audit to ensure compliance with existing ISSF conservation measures and standards, bringing the number of participating companies to 12.

“ISSF is committed to making the regional fisheries management system work by advocating for nations to follow the scientific advice provided to them, facilitating new science where it’s needed and taking direct action when it can make a difference,” said Susan Jackson, ISSF president. “Today, with the addition of these participating companies, we’re in an even stronger position to put our approach to work for tuna fisheries.”

Conservas Garavilla does business throughout Europe and Central and South America with its brand Isabel. Jealsa Rianxeira serves the European market under the brand names Soluco la Mer, Chancerelle Frères, Mare Aperto and Rianxeira.
