Michael Tlusty: Differentiated schemes drive continual improvement
There are similarities and differences between the various aquaculture certification programs – Best Aquaculture Practices, Aquaculture Stewardship Council, GlobalGAP, etc. – but until recently there has been little publicly available analysis to document those points.
Michael Tlusty, director of ocean sustainability science at the New England Aquarium and the School for the Environment at the University of Massachusetts at Boston, presented “Assessing the Breadth and Depth of Shrimp Aquaculture Certification Schemes” at the Global Aquaculture Alliance’s GOAL 2016 conference in Guangzhou, China, on Sept. 22, 2016.
In his presentation, Tlusty shared findings from several years of analysis focused on shrimp farming, and then addressed the roadmap toward increasing the sustainability of aquaculture production.
