Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) is driving the world’s leading certification programme for responsibly farmed seafood and we are looking for a passionate seafood/aqua/marine Market Development Manager who would like to join us in expanding the uptake of ASC’s certification and labelling program across supply chain partners in North America.

  • Can you pro-actively build relationships with strategic aquaculture landscape shapers like NGOs or institutions who could boost uptake and/or endorse ASC?
