BAP - Best Aquaculture Practices

BAP is the first comprehensive aquaculture certification program with a global presence to be recognized by the Global Sustainable Seafood Initiative (GSSI) and the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).
BAP is administered by the Global Aquaculture Alliance (GGA), a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion, education and leadership in responsible aquaculture.

BAP includes the entire aquaculture production chain from farms to processing plants, as well as hatcheries and feed factories; it also addresses environmental and social responsibility, animal welfare, food safety and traceability of aquaculture facilities.

Benefits of BAP certification:
  • It is the ONLY aquaculture certification that covers the entire production chain: farms, processing plants, hatcheries and feed factories.
  • The standards cover almost 100% of the species of fish, crustaceans and molluscs produced worldwide.
  • They are rigorous standards with a scientific basis and in constant improvement to meet the challenges presented by the aquaculture sector.
