Species Extension Project: Other Species
In 2021, the ASC Board identified and approved several species to be added to the ASC programme. Some species have been approved but have not yet been evaluated for compliance with the ASC requirements. This is needed for the inclusion in the Scope Extension Project and eventually in the ASC Farm Standard.
Here is the list of species:
- Percoidea superfamily
These species are not a priority for the Scope Extension Project. The inclusion of additional species in the ASC Farm Standard is a process that needs sufficient scientific data and producer input for the development of the white paper and for setting species-specific metrics according to the Metrics Methodology. Therefore, ASC will evaluate this project after enough satisfactory supplementary information has been collected and after the integration of other priority species into the ASC Farm Standard has been completed
We invite stakeholders involved in the aquaculture sector of the aforementioned species to provide their input through the Data Submission Portal. Stakeholders will be notified about the next steps of this project through official ASC channels.
