Demonstrate the responsibility of your aquaculture practices.
As the world’s population increases, the demand for seafood is growing, with per capita consumption doubling over the last 50 years. With some fish stocks already being fished at unsustainable levels, aquaculture is being used to meet global demand. Today, more than half of the fish consumed worldwide comes from aquaculture operations.
The rapid growth of aquaculture, now the world’s fastest growing food production system, has created concerns about the social and environmental impacts of this industry. In response, the Aquaculture Stewardship Council has established a set of international standards that address these issues. SGS is an approved certification body for the ASC standards.
