Cromaris, a leading Croatian aquaculture company specialized in white fish farming and and processing with specific emphasis on sea bass, sea bream and shellfish – is the first company authorized to use Friend of the Sea (FOS) logo in combination with theGlobalG.A.P. Number.

According to the agreement between GlobalG.A.P. and Friend of the Sea, the two certification schemes formed a partnership to offer farmers joint certifications. The aim of the programme is to reduce duplication, push innovation and drive down audit costs for farms.

After the GlobalG.A.P. assessment audit, run by DNV GL, Cromaris was found compliant with the GlobalG.A.P. Aquaculture Version 4 and the four criteria defined in the Friend of the Sea Add-On. These criteria cover the impact on water body sediment, the effect on the local community regarding access to drinking water and fishing areas, and social criteria by requiring GRASP (GlobalG.A.P. Risk Assessment on Social Practice).

Cromaris headquarters, fish sorting and processing facility are located in Zadar. The company has five farms, two of which are located in Istria (northern Adriatic), and three in Zadar's area (central Adriatic). All farm locations are selected for their exceptionally clear waters and unspoiled nature, far away from any possible contaminants.

Major investments have been underway, which rank Cromaris among the most technologically advanced entities in the sector of sea
