Fishion is the aquaculture division of Van Rijsingen Groep and focusses on sustainable fish farming of catfish, tilapia and Claresse. The company was founded in 1985 and employs around 30 people. Fishion breeds, produces, markets and sells sustainable farmed fish with attention for an efficient and transparent supply chain.
Fishion meets the modern consumers increasing demand for sustainable and fresh fish with an ecologically sound product; a fresh, healthy, sustainable fish with as little food miles as possible.
This product combined with specialised knowledge has turned Fishion into a pioneer. Constant research and development enables Fishion to provide third parties with reliable information about animal welfare, ecological - and health and food safety issues.
Fishion fish farms use a minimum of water and energy and require no heating up to an outdoor temperature of –0º Celsius. The energy consumption level of the closed circuit systems is lower than the energy consumption level necessary to catch one kilo of fish in the wild.
Fishions clients are supermarkets, wholesale dealers, food trade companies and the catering industry. It is Fishions ambition to continue to increase her expertise and her added value in the international market.
