ASC ranked in first place for aquaculture certification schemes by Aquatic Life Institute (ALI)
September 11, 2023
We’re delighted to have secured the top spot in the second edition of the Aquaculture Certification Schemes Benchmark published by the Aquatic Life Institute (ALI)!
The Aquatic Life Institute is an organisation that researches and advises on aquatic animal welfare.
The report assessed the upcoming ASC Farm Standard which includes rigorous monitoring and evaluation requirements for seafood farms, key welfare indicators, including water quality parameters and stocking density requirements.
Our ASC standards set strict requirements for responsible seafood farming that encourage producers to farm with care for fish, the environment and the people on and around the farm.
Aligned Farm Standard
Alignment is an important milestone in delivering ASC’s mission to help transform the industry towards more sustainable and responsible aquaculture.
Animal – including farmed aquatic animal – welfare is increasingly considered as a key factor in defining responsible production and determining the social acceptability of an animal production system.
