Pesca TartaFree

Towards the first "Turtle Safe" certification!

The TED solution was effective, and a boat decided to adopt it, going towards the first "Turtle Safe" certification.

The international "Friend of the Sea" brand has become the leading certification standard for products and services that respects and protects the marine environment. TartaLife's commitment to promoting the use of mitigation devices to reduce the catch and mortality of sea turtles meets the reality of certification to reward fishermen who decide to adopt such devices. In fact, a first trawler has voluntarily adopted the TED, and will soon obtain the first "Turtle Safe" certification on the product caught. Hopefully it's just the beginning!
