Acari Fish

The invasive devil fish currently accounts for up to 70% of freshwater capture in Mexico, decimating small-scale fisheries across the country. Today, we’re hiring these affected fishermen and turning the tide on the devil fish. Our first product was El Diablito jerky, which because of the fish's unique texture, tastes and feels like beef jerky but is better for consumers as well as the planet. We're now launching Pezzy Pets treats, limited ingredient treats with a positive pawprint!
We're upcycling the hated, invasive devil fish from Mexico into delectably meaty foods.
