Today, many leading retail, foodservice, institutional and wholesale buyers respect sustainable seafood-sourcing principles and require third-party certification of aquaculture facilities. The “all-in-one” Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certification program transparently verifies that aquaculture operations that attain BAP certification employ responsible aquaculture practices that minimize environmental impacts, respect workers’ rights and produce wholesome products.

Other Species Covered by BAP Finfish/Crustacean Farm & Processing Plant Standards
More than 700 BAP-certified facilities can be found worldwide.
A star system in which groups of associated facilities are categorized is driving the entire aquaculture production chain to become BAP-certified.
