About IFA v6 for aquaculture

Integrated Farm Assurance (IFA) for aquaculture is a global standard for responsible farming practices that covers the entire production chain, from brood stock, seedlings, and compound feed to farming, harvesting, and transportation. The standard adopts a holistic approach, with principles and criteria that cover the key topics of food safety, environmental sustainability and biodiversity, animal welfare, workers’ well-being, production processes, and traceability.

GLOBALG.A.P. standards for aquaculture have been operational for almost 20 years and are developed through extensive collaboration with stakeholders throughout the sector. IFA is tried, tested, and trusted across the globe, with GLOBALG.A.P. certified production processes producing over 2.5 million metric tons of aquaculture products annually.
