Setting The Standard for Seafood

Around 60% of 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 

We run the world’s leading certification programme for responsibly farmed seafood and along with our partners, we drive additional impact beyond just certification. 

Our impacts

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.

We use data to help us measure what difference ASC farms are making to their environment and their community.
