High in protein and low in fat, there is no secret to tilapia’s huge appeal.
Tilapia sold through Ocean153 are from Trapia Malaysia which is an acronym for “Traceable Tilapia”. This allows for all products to be traceable and verifiable throughout the value chain using proprietary DNA technology. This ensures security by allowing the fish’s origin and identity to be verified.
Trapia uses the world’s best Tilapia genetics : GenoMar Supreme Tilapia to grow tilapia in our own grow-out facilities. Headquartered in Malaysia, the company was granted the right to operate its eco-friendly farm in the pristine rainforest-fed fresh water lakes of Tasik Temenggor of the Perak River system.
Trapia is the first in the world to implement a state-of-the art "egg-to-plate” tamper-proof traceability system using the GenopassTM verification system, thus setting a new industry standard in food safety.
