Tri Marine provides transparent, cost-effective supply chain solutions for tuna and tuna products through its vertically integrated group of companies. Supply starts with tuna from the company’s owned, affiliated and contract fleets processed through owned or contract plants, with support from Tri Marine’s global network of commercial offices.
Tri Marine’s wholly owned subsidiary National Fisheries Developments Ltd. recently added a fourth fishing vessel to its MSC-certified pole-and-line fleet operating from its base in Noro, Solomon Islands. In addition, Tri Marine works with trusted suppliers to source fully traceable pole-and-line and handline tuna from Indonesia.
Tri Marine is a leader in fishing sustainability initiatives that emphasize collaboration with stakeholders in the private, public, and non-profit sectors. This commitment to sustainability extends to the company’s environmental and social practices. Tri Marine is one of the founding members of the International Seafood Sustainability Foundation. It co-chairs the Tuna Sub-Group of the Seafood Task Force, applying the Seafood Task Force Code of Conduct to its suppliers globally. Tri Marine sources and promotes responsibly-caught products from well managed fisheries, including MSC certified skipjack, yellowfin and albacore. Tri Marine is also a business collaborator with the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch program for its Ocean Naturals brand.
Tri Marine is a privately held company, with corporate headquarters in Bellevue, Washington. Since its founding in 1972, Tri Marine has grown to be one of the largest tuna supply companies in the world, serving well-known brands, as well as processing plants and fishing companies.
Tri Marine’s mission to provide sustainable, high-quality products to tuna markets around the world aligns well with IPNLF’s work in supporting one-by-one tuna fisheries. We’re proud to be their partner in efforts to support a sustainable tuna industry.Renato Curto (CEO of Tri Marine Group)
