Consolidated Fisheries Ltd


Consolidated Fisheries Ltd is a fishing company based in Stanley, Falkland Islands. It is fully owned within the Islands, and has been active in the toothfish industry since 1994.

It owns 100% of the 1,040 mt quota for Patagonian Toothfish (Dissostichus eleginoides) in the Falkland Islands Conservation Zones. Toothfish is better known as Chilean Seabass in North America.

In March 2014, the Falkland Island longline fishery became the first local fishery to be certified as sustainable under the MSC Principles and Criteria for Sustainable Fishing. It has also been ranked as one of the three “Best Choice” toothfish fisheries around the world by the Monterrey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch programme.

In 2017, CFL invested in the construction of a new longliner, the CFL Hunter, which is the first new-built vessel ever to be constructed with Falkland Islands capital. The Hunter replaced the CFL Gambler which CFL owned since 2004.
