Our standards are not static. They are based on best practices in aquaculture and have been developed to encourage innovation. To ensure the continued relevance and effectiveness of the standards, we coordinate periodical operational standards reviews that are open to the public. Based on the outcome of the review, the standards are amended to reflect changes in science and technology.
Our Group certification and Multisite certification methodologies have been created to encourage small-scale farmers and producers with multiple farm sites to meet our standards for responsible aquaculture.
Group certification will enable groups of farmers to work collectively towards compliance with our standards.
Multi-site certification allows farmers operating in multiple locations to achieve certification for more than one site through a single assessment.
