Committed to Excellence



Harta Samudra are purveyors of the finest fresh, frozen, and processed Yellowfin Tuna in Indonesia, exporting for more than 10 years to more than 10 countries including US and Japan. With HACCP, BRC and MSC certified processing plant, quality of product is always guaranteed, and so are the standards of our 4 processing plant facilities located in Ambon, Banda, Buru Island and Morotai.


Harta Samudra is one of the leading company in implementing responsible sourcing practices in Indonesia. By partnering with Yayasan Masyarakat Dan Perikanan Indonesia (MDPI), Anova Food and Maluku Fisheries and Marine Services, we contribute the implementation of rigorous sampling and data collection program toward traceable and responsible fisheries management, especially Yellowfin Tuna, in Maluku and Indonesia.


Our focus is not only about fisheries sustainability but also livelihood improvement. The combined improvement can be found by implementing standard of FAIR TRADE USA. In 31 October 2014, we received the first in the world Fair Trade wild catch Yellowfin Tuna certification from our supply chain in Maluku. The fair trade certification is the way to show the world that we are moving in the right direction and supporting the fish and livelihood sustainability in Indonesia.

In 2019, the volume of Fair Trade shipped to the US market increased by 250%, returning more than $300,000 in Fair Trade premiums back to fishing communities.

In 2020, our North Buru supply chain have been certified by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) with the ecolabel, which indicated that the associations' catch meet the international best practices for sustainable fishing. With the award, we become the first hardline yellowfin tuna fishery in the world to meet the MSC standard.

Indonesian Tuna

Handline Tuna. One fish at a time

One-by-one YellowfinTuna fishing  (Handline) is about one fisherman, using one hook to catch one Yellowfin Tuna. One fish at a time. This traditional way of catching Yellowfin Tuna has been carried out in Indonesia for many generations and is widely lauded as the most socially and environmentally responsible way to catch Tuna.  


However, to meet the international standard, it was necessary to collect extensive data, implementing a traceability system rigorous enough to trace the fish back to the small-scale fishing vessel that caught it, and more importantly, ensure that no subtitution of no-certified product occurs. TRACETALES® is the traceability system used at Harta Samudra to track each fish back to the individual fisherman and point of landing.

One Man, One Hook, One Fish

One-by-one Tuna fishing  (Handline) is about one fisherman, using one hook to catch one Yellowfin Tuna. This is widely lauded as the most socially and environmentally responsible way to catch Tuna.
