“Celebrating a journey of sustainability excellence”


Oceanpick, a trailblazer in Aquaculture, Sri Lanka’s first and South Asia’s largest oceanic fin fish farm, has achieved yet another milestone. It is now the only farm in the Indian subcontinent to earn the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) Tropical Marine fin-fish certification for offshore farming, and one of the five Barramundi farms globally. ASC is widely known to be the most exceptional global standard for seafood production.

Oceanpick was previously the first South Asian farm to earn Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certification for offshore farming. This latest accomplishment underscores its unwavering dedication to upholding the most exceptional standards of environmental stewardship, ethical business practices, and product quality. Over the years, the company has continued to uphold its reputation for excellence in all aspects and is applauded by customers locally and globally. Oceanpick is ready to serve the demands of the most discerning markets with its expanded operations, unwavering dedication to sustainability, product, and service.

“From the commencement of Oceanpick’s journey, the Founder’s vision was to recognize the importance of adopting sustainable practices to protect the long-term health of the oceans and the communities that depend on them. That took centre stage in everything he did. We remain a vertically integrated company from hatchery to distribution. For the Oceanpick Team, sustainability is not just a buzzword, but it is a part of routine operations.” Stated the Chief Commercial Officer, Dakshini Bulathsinhala.

Farming produces over half of the seafood consumed around the world. It supplies healthy, affordable protein to the rapidly growing global population. ASC develops and manages rigorous standards in the industry, which include impacts on farms and its environment, employees, animal welfare, and surrounding communities. Making ASC compliant is vital in the global seafood production landscape. ASC certification provides consumers that the seafood purchased and consumed is produced in a manner that prioritizes environmental sustainability, social responsibility, and consumer safety.

“We continue to prioritize responsible farming practices, minimize our environmental footprint, and constantly seek innovative solutions to minimize waste and preserve biodiversity. We strive to operate in harmony with nature which not only ensures the long-term viability of our business but equally contributes to the general health of the planet,” added Dakshini Bulathsinhala.
