Phil’s Fish Market & Eatery
Safe Harbor utilizes the most advanced proprietary technologies to conduct their daily seafood analyses. Independent technicians, working for Safe Harbor, operate in seafood processing/distribution facilities to proactively test seafood according to each of Safe Harbor’s Standard Operating Procedures’ (SOP). Because different products and species necessitate different tests, once certified to Safe Harbor’s extremely expedient, accurate, and stringent mercury standards, products that require PCR testing (for pathogens, such as E. Coli and Salmonella) go into a quarantine area within the facility for a short time to await certification. Other applicable products undergo histamine testing where quantitative results are attained in approximately 45 minutes. And brand new to the Safe Harbor platform, ALL fish originating from Japan and the surrounding waters, in addition to all HMS species (highly-migratory species) are screened for gamma-ray emitting radionuclides using a sodium iodide scintillation probe. When added together, all of these proactive testing measures make Safe Harbor Certification the most thorough, all-encompassing seafood safety system in the world.
Once the requisite tests have been completed and the applicable products certified, all test data is transferred and coded onto a 10-digit hexadecimal traceability tag that contains relevant information for the respective product, including species, catch origin, Julian date and the test data accumulated for that product. All certified product is then stickered with the Safe Harbor® seal and a trace tag to ensure the end customer knows the product being received has been tested and certified to the strictest standards attainable.
Safe Harbor® works closely with Royal Hawaiian to ensure that no compromise needs to be made to quality or spec. Enjoy seafood the way it was meant to be, sustainable, delicious and healthy!
