wwf and aquaculture
WWF and Aquaculture
  • Focus on aquaculture began with shrimp
  • Studied impacts and realized they could be reduced
  • Evolved into multi-stakeholder development of performance-based, voluntary standards
  • An aquaculture eco-label should cover a suite of species

looking forward
Looking Forward
  • Bivalve Aquaculture Dialogue Draft Standards- open for public consultation until November 30th
  • December 9-11th GSC meeting in Sydney, Australia to address public comments and amend the draft standards
  • Second public comment period January-February 2010
  • Bivalve Aquaculture Dialogue Standards finalized in early 2010 and incorporated into ASC
msc and enhanced fisheries
MSC and enhanced fisheries
  • Capture-based Aquaculture – known as ‘Catch and grow’ fisheries. For example, in mussel fishing where the fishers catch small, young mussels and grow them on ropes. The important factor that separates this from pure aquaculture is that the fish start out being caught from the wild. Some catch-and-grow fisheries fall within the scope of the MSC standard.
  • Culture-based fisheries – also known as ‘Hatch and catch’fisheries.
  • Habitat modification: for example, providing ropes for mussels to grow on.
dialogue definition of aquaculture
Dialogue Definition of Aquaculture
  • The active husbandry of bivalve shellfish from seed to harvest within a defined area and with defined ownership of the shellfish being cultured.
msc vs asc certification
MSC vs. ASC certification
  • Scope (farm vs. fishery)
  • Cost
  • Reputation and recognition
  • Detail
  • Social component of the ASC
