Operational Standards Review
Contact person: Iain Pollard
The goal of the ASC standards is to provide a means to measurably improve the environmental and social performance of aquaculture operations. This operational review aims to ensure continued relevance and effectiveness of the pangasius, tilapia and salmon standards in terms of inclusion of the industry best practice. It is not intended that this will be a full review of the ASC standards, rather a focussed review on areas where the effectiveness of a standard is not as anticipated during the Aquaculture Dialogues or will not deliver on the intent as set out in ASC's Theory of Change.
During the round of public consultation on the Terms of Reference we received various comments from stakeholders suggesting what topics should be reviewed. The first topics that will be addressed are:
Salmon Standard, Forage Fish Dependency Ratio (FFDR)
Salmon Standard, Parasiticide Treatment Index (PTI)
Tilapia Standard, Antibiotics
