Kingfish Zeeland – based in the Dutch province of Zeeland, the farm taps into the pristine marine estuary water of the Eastern Scheldt, a Natura 2000 nature reserve, to deliver a healthy, antibiotic-free premium delicacy: the Dutch Yellowtail (Seriola Lalandi), high grade sashimi, a grilled or smoked classic, and a ‘Green Choice’ recommended by the Good Fish Foundation as an excellent sustainable alternative, available fresh from the Netherlands all year round, with daily deliveries across the EU.

Seafarm Kamperland – a fish farm focused on  processing of razor clams and shellfish, the fishery, and innovative turbot aquaculture, based on balance with nature. This farm is not only very energy efficient, but also very animal and environmentally friendly. The farm has been declared “green” by the Dutch government and is considered an international example. In January 2022, the turbot farm was the first in the world to receive the ASC certificate for flatfish.
