The company began by purchasing herring at auctions for resale, eventually expanding into operating a large fleet of fishing trawlers operating globally. They are exporters of seafood to Africa and suppliers of fish for zoos.

Parlevliet & van der Plas is certified by the Marine Stewardship Council.[5]

The company operates a 6500 m2 freezing store on Faroe Islands, Denmark.[6]

In 2018 P & V buyed the biggest german Fish company "Deutsche See"[1] [2]

Spread of operationsEdit

The firm regularly enters into other fisheries through acquisitions.[7][8][9]

Regular acquisitions with partners make the spread of the company extensive, across different fisheries in the world.[10][11][12][13]

CriticismsEdit

In 2013, Greenpeace lodged a legal complaint against Parlevliet & van der Plas for the alleged dumping of 1.5 million kg of fish into the ocean.[14][15]

In 2012 and 2015 the firm introduced Super trawlers into Australian waters, utilising the Tasmanian firm Seafish Tasmania.[16] The presence of the trawlers in Australian waters provoked widespread criticism of Seafish Tasmania, and Parlevliet & van der Plas.[17]
