Martin's Statement

In 2016 our GLOBALG.A.P. aquaculture homepage GGN.org finally went online. The GNN logo was implemented at the same time and is requested more and more by retailers. Our platform is the ideal tool to communicate certified aquaculture towards customers and consumers in a transparent way. I would like to continue to guide the organization in its further development and push for global recognition of the certification
