Blue Agenda

At GRUPOMAR®, our commitment to sustainability is reflected in our fishing activities backed by the most rigorous currently existing standards, and in using sustainable materials in our daily operations, which result in high-quality products.

In 2019, we became the first company in the tuna sector in Mexico to adhere to the Mexico Global Compact and the UN 2030 Agenda to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

In particular, due to its nature and activity, GRUPOMAR® has a direct and relevant impact on the following SDGs:


Provisioning raw material


High-quality protein production at a low cost


Community growth and generation of local employment


Healthy food that combats diabetes and obesity


Management and responsible handling of all the elements of the value chain


Innovation and technology to optimize usage and production

Our commitments:


Improve the Mexicans’ diet to help eradicate obesity, mainly childhood obesity, and avoid diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, or heart disease. We provide healthy products with high nutritional value to help future generations in Mexico.


Guarantee the future of the oceans and reduce environmental impact. Protect the marine environment and ensure that our fishing products and processes meet the requirements of international organizations with high-quality standards.


Improve the lives of people and their families by combating economic differences and gaps that limit opportunities with fair wages for all our employees.


Eradicate gender differences by being the workforce with the most women employees in Colima.


Bet on a circular economy and responsible consumption of the resources used.

Onboard Observer Program

As part of our sustainability efforts, the GRUPOMAR® tuna fleet complies with the Onboard Observer Program in 100% of its fishing vessels.

The observer program seeks to accompany tuna fishing in Mexico with the mission of:

  • Verify that fishing practices are sustainable and under the most rigorous international standards.
  • Vessels that fish legally have the presence of an observer from the Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission (CIAT) or the National Fisheries Commission (CONAPESCA) on board.
  • There is truthful and current information on the impact of the tuna fishery in the Eastern Pacific Ocean (EPO) to expand knowledge and promote taking relevant actions in favor of environmental care and the marine ecosystem.

Some activities include:


Mass sampling:

Constant review and recording of the pattern length (LP) and body weight of the tuna.


Biological sampling:

Indicate pattern length (LP), sex, maturity, stomach contents, and fat content and collect otoliths.


Review and record non-target species caught during fishing, indicating whether they were retained or separated.
