FISH AND CRAB SUSTAINABILITY
Seafood is the core business of the KEMILAU BINTANG TIMUR, PT (KBT). KBT companies is committed to providing its customers with sustainable wild-caught and farm-raised seafood products. KBT is also committed to being a responsible company by using its seafood sourcing and marketing role to support responsible fishing and farming practices needed to produce sustainable seafood.
KBT believes that the sustainability of seafood is the result of the process of understanding, monitoring and managing the ecosystem impacts of capture fisheries and aquaculture. Fisheries and fish farming are both dynamic and change can either be negative, short-sighted and unsustainable, or positive in achieving long-term sustainability while meeting a growing global demand for seafood.
