Korean fishery exports national brand, K·FISH, is to be introduced to the global market on November 9 in Los Angeles, California, in an event that will be helpful to showcase the quality export seafood products from the Asian country, such as gim, tuna and abalone.

K·FISH is the first government-certified fishery exports national brand of premium marine products selected based on strict management regulations, meticulous quality control, and systemic evaluation standards.

The Korean trademark is registered as of September, in 36 countries including the United States, the European Union, Japan, and China and its application process is currently in review in 16 countries including Russia and Vietnam.

The Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries stated that he plans to expand the export of K·FISH gradually, starting with the US, a key fishery trade partner, then to Asian countries including China and finally moving on to Europe, South America, and the Middle East in 2018.

Currently, 11 categories are available: fresh flatfish, abalone (fresh and processed), Gim/ laver (dry and seasoned), sea cucumber (dry), oyster (frozen), red snow crab, fish cake (steamed, grilled, fried and fish meat sausage), squid (seasoned), conger (fillet), tuna (canned and pouched), Miyok/sea mustard (dry).

From the ministry, it was pointed out that the initiative also favours local haenyeo, that is to say, female divers who dive for fish and other seafood without the use of oxygen tanks. These divers avoid harvesting seafood during the breeding season.

K·FISH sets a new standard for aquatic products, meeting strict government quality regulations and evaluation criteria. Only select marine products that meet these guidelines are allowed to carry the K·FISH name, checked by an expert group and an operation committee through site inspections.
