What is farmed seafood?
Find out how farmed seafood can help feed a growing global population, why fish farming needs to be done responsibly and how you can make a responsible choice.
Aquaculture means farming fish, seafood and aquatic plants. Farmed seafood is an important source of protein readily available to billions of people around the world. It is helping fight world hunger and malnutrition, and overfishing. But, like with all farming, it can have negative social and environmental impacts if not done responsibly.
ASC’s certification programme is based on the key pillars of environmental and social responsibility. When you choose ASC labelled seafood you reward responsible farmers and make an impact by increasing the demand for responsibly farmed fish.
