Pesciro was born in 2001 offering solutions to its clients in the import and export of frozen Fish and Seafood from all over the world. For a few years now, and as a result of our concern to diversify the activity of the company, we have been adding complementary lines of business. Currently the range of products has diversified also offering meat products, fruits and other food products.

PESCIRO, S.L.U, has among its goals continuous improvement, customer and other stakeholders´ satisfaction, to contribute to sustainable economic development and to ensure the highest standards of quality and food safety.
Pesciro is a company committed to sustainability and the environment. One of our priorities is the sustainability of the fisheries which supply our products. To develop our activities in a sustainable way Pesciro is committed to:
The MSC standard for chain of custody and traceability of fishery products ensures that the blue MSC logo is only used in products from certified fisheries. That gives buyers and consumers confidence that the seafood they are buying can be traced to a fishery that follows the MSC environmental standard for sustainable fishing.
PESCIRO is a company aware of the conservation of the environment. That is why we guarantee that all our tuna suppliers comply with the DOLPHIN SAFE TUNA agreement and supply us with Tuna from boats that use Non-Entangling FAD´s to minimize the Bycatch. In the case of Tuna longline fisheries, we require our suppliers to adopt the following GOOD PRACTICES to reduce bycatch of other species such as sharks and sea turtles:
(a) the use of circle hooks and only monofilament lines (the use of wire trace is prohibited);
(b) the implementation by the crew of best practice handling techniques such as those outlined in the ISSF Skippers’ Guidebook to Sustainable Longline Fishing Practices
(c) no use of “shark lines” at any time.
PESCIRO condemns the finning of the shark, and with that purpose we make our policy clear and public.
