To promote responsible practices across the aquaculture industry, the Global Aquaculture Alliance coordinates the development of Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certification standards for hatcheries, farms, processing facilities and feed mills.
The BAP program drives continued improvements via high standards that deliver significant benefits industrywide.
The BAP standards currently cover aquaculture facilities for shrimp, salmon, tilapia, channel catfish and Pangasius. Additional standards are under development.
Hundreds of BAP-certified processing plants and farms worldwide now supply seafood produced in compliance with the BAP certification standards. To join the list of preferred sources, please review the Certification Process page for directions on how to apply for Best Aquaculture Practices certification.
Program applicants initially review and complete an application to enter the BAP program. Once accepted, facilities must undergo a site inspection and present specified production records for traceability for at least three months. After successful inspection, facilities pay a program fee based on total annual seafood production volume.
