All fish are individually caught and handled, allowing Gold River to implement onboard protocols that mean the fish maintain their superior quality from the moment they surface from the water.

Gold River has also created a 7-Point Signature System™ that is followed through boarding, unloading and processing. They work with off loaders and processers to ensure the aesthetic quality of their fish remains intact – fish are never dropped or thrown. When the fish reach the grading table, each individual fish is unloaded by hand, graded, and carefully placed into a tote under Gold River’s supervision. All products have guaranteed traceability.
