Based on standards developed by the Global Aquaculture Alliance, Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) is the world’s most comprehensive third-party aquaculture certification program.
Are You Covered?
For larger retailers and foodservice operators, buying farmed seafood from BAP-certified facilities ticks many of the boxes in corporate sustainable seafood-sourcing policies, as the BAP standards encompass not only environmental responsibility, but also social responsibility, food safety, animal health and welfare, and traceability.
For time-crunched smaller retailers and foodservice operators without established sustainabilty policies, buying farmed seafood from BAP-certified facilities provides the third-party assurance you and your suppliers seek without having to research each facility individually.
For consumers, seeking out the blue BAP logo leads to farmed seafood that was raised and processed with great care in a safe, responsible manner.
