Setting the Standard for Seafood
More than half the seafood eaten around the world is farmed. Seafood farming is a large, growing industry with a significant global impact and must be handled with great responsibility and care. It is one of our biggest opportunities to feed a growing population responsibly.
The most robust and relevant standards, with care for people and the planet
Seafood lovers choose the ASC label because they can trust that their seafood has been farmed with care.
Producers choose the ASC programme for greater access to global market demand. Learn more about our ASC standards and find out how to apply for certification.
Businesses choose the ASC programme for ASC’s highly-recognised and trusted label. Explore Chain of Custody certification and see our services for partners.
ASC envisions a world where seafood farming plays a major role in supplying food and supporting local communities across the globe while minimising negative impacts on the environment.
Every ASC certified farm and every ASC labelled product gets us closer to achieving this vision and makes a difference to our overall impact.
