Marine Stewardship Council (MSC)
Most widely recognized global sustainability certification for wildcapture fisheries which sets a standard for sustainable fishing.
Focus on ensuring science-based quota systems to dictate allowable catches as well as eliminating Illegal, Unregulated, and Unreported (IUU) fishing.
Standard consists of three core principles: 1. Sustainable fish stocks, 2. Minimizing environmental impact, and 3. Effective management.
Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP)
Most widely recognized global sustainability certification for farmraised species developed by the Global Aquaculture Alliance.
Standards address environmental and social responsibility, food safety, animal welfare, and traceability in a voluntary certification program for aquaculture facilities.
BAP standards are practiced for the entire aquaculture production chain, including farms, processing plants, hatcheries and feed mills.
