Aquaculture Stewardship Council

Creating Change on the Water

Aquaculture Stewardship Council

The ASC will offer farm level annual certification.

The ASC will use accredited third-party Certification Bodies (CB) that are ISO 65 compliant.

The ASC will initially offer certification for 12 aquaculture commodity species, which are: salmon, shrimp, pangasius, tilapia, freshwater trout, oysters, mussels, clams, scallops, abalone, cobia, and seriola.

The ASC standards will focus on minimizing environmental and social impacts.

The ASC will “partner” with accredited organizations that offer food safety standards and traceability. Thus offering “one-stop-shopping” for certification.

Aquaculture Stewardship Council

What is ASC?

More than a standards holding body, it is a global transformation system for aquaculture:

  • Credible – goal is to follow ISEAL guidelines, multi stakeholder, open and transparent, science based performance metrics
  • Effective – minimizes the environmental and social footprint of commercial aquaculture by addressing key impacts
  • Adds value – connects the farm to the marketplace by promoting sustainable practices through a consumer - label
