Guiding Principles

These visionary guiding principles, identified by GAA’s Founding Members in 1997, remain relevant and have improved aquaculture practices throughout the farming, processing and distribution of aquaculture products. We aim to expand the availability of seafood from Best Aquaculture Practices-certified facilities that address these principles.
