Become certified in Sustainable seafood

The demand for sustainable seafood is rising. With certification according to internationally recognized standards, you can document sustainable aquaculture or fishing. The seafood industry is growing and the demands for sustainable production are increasing.

Certification of seafood products according to standards such as ASC (Aquaculture Stewardship Council) or GLOBAL G.A.P. documents that the current requirements for food safety, animal welfare, environmental protection and social responsibility are met - so that the environmental impact for animals, nature and humans are minimized.

Traceability standards ASC CoC (Chain of Custody), MSC CoC (Marine Stewardship Council) and GLOBALG.A.P. CoC covers the entire production chain for seafood and ensures sustainability right up to the consumer. ASC ensures sustainability in aquaculture production while MSC safeguards sustainable wild populations of fish and shellfish.
