Global Seafoods can track every box of seafood through its production process back to the part of the ocean it was pulled from. "We can track back to the fishing vessel that delivered it, as well as the name of the captain and first mate on the ship," Nikitenko says. "We can go as far as the fishing ground because every time the vessel brings us a load of fresh fish we know where on the map it came from."
The company's tracking capabilities allows it to ensure the fish is pulled from the ocean exactly where the vessel it says it was taken from. "If the vessel says it's fishing in area 'X' and I see them in area 'B' we can inform them," Nikitenko explains. "Luckily, this has never happened because the captains of our vessels are very reliable and live by the rules, but we can track how and where they are fishing. The industry doesn't require us to keep record, but we do it for food safety and people's safety so if there is a problem we can look back to see what went wrong and fix it."
All of the fish produced by Global Seafoods is wild and the company refuses to deal with farmed fish, except for black caviar because it is impossible to get in the wild. "Sometimes I feel like a seafood teacher," Nikitenko admits. "For example, customers call for Atlantic salmon, but it's farmed and we only deal with wild fish. A lot of people don't want fish unless it's wild, but it's up to them to find it."
