Dear Daily Fish Patron,

Of late, there is news going around regarding the formalin-laced fish that reach Kerala from other parts of India. In this scenario, where people are suspicious of every fish seller, I felt an urgent need to clarify certain facts about the testing process of fish at Daily Fish to you, our valued customer who has put your trust in us.

Daily Fish, from the very onset of our operations, has been very keen to completely avoid fish contaminated with Formalin or any other chemicals. For this purpose, much before anyone thought about it, we at Daily Fish had introduced Formaldehyde Test kits since 2016, imported from the United States, for ensuring the quality of the fish we are delivering. Daily Fish is, in fact, the first in India to start using Formaldehyde Test Kits.

We fully Support ‘Operation Sagar Rani’

Daily Fish has always stood for ensuring and delivering chemical-free, good fish. We are in full support of the Food Safety department and their ‘Operation Sagar Rani’, which we hold as an excellent initiative by the Government of Kerala, to ensure Food Safety in Fish. We whole-heartedly support this initiative for 2 reasons:

  1. To accomplish our goal by providing Healthy Fish by eradicating any kind of added chemicals
  2. To protect the hundreds of thousands of Fishermen who earnestly risk their lives for a living and who are firmly against addition of any kind of Chemicals.

We ‘Double’ check to ensure chemical-free fish

Daily Fish has always been very keen to ensure that our fish is free of any trace of added chemicals. Specifically for Formaldehyde, we have a 2 step testing process:

  1. Upon receipt of any kind of Fresh fish, we use the Formaldehyde instant test kit* to see any trace of this poisonous Chemical
  2. In addition to the use of Formaldehyde Test Kits, we also send the non detected samples for confirmatory testing to internationally accredited labs that DOUBLY ensure the fish is free from any form of Formalin

Daily Fish is tested in External and internationally accredited labs

Though we have in-house labs at Daily Fish, we have always used external and internationally accredited labs for conducting chemical tests. External labs are more trustworthy to the general public than in-house labs when it comes to such sensitive cases.

Here is a summary of the Formalin Test results done in Internationally Accredited labs since the Year 2016
