Kendell Certified Sustainable


Anyone, anywhere can scan the bar code on our packages with a hand held device to identify the vessel name, FAO location of catch and chain of custody of the Platinum Chilean seabass the package contains.



The Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) and the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) certify via Dissostichus Catch Documents (DCD) that all of Kendell’s Chilean seabass products are legally caught and sustainable.  Our products are fished from vessels equipped with satellite-linked Vessel Monitoring Systems (VMS) that track vessel movements to insure compliance with set quotas.  All VMS data is reported to CCAMLR who then issues a Catch Documentation Scheme (CDS) chain of custody document.  The CDS requires fishing captains, exporting officials and

importing officials to sign off on the legality and sustainability of the catch.
