The Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) offers standards for aquaculture and for the seafood chain of custody.
The standards are being developed by the Aquaculture Dialogues in compliance with the guidelines for standard setting established by the International Social and Environmental Accreditation and Labeling Alliance (ISEAL).
The certification according to these standards will be in the hands of independent, third-party, accredited certifiers.
The ASC standards seek to increase the availability of certified sustainable seafood. In 2012, the ASC will launch a credible consumer label that assures compliance and will make it easy for everyone to take part.
