Advancing G.A.P. for Aquaculture Production Advancing G.A.P. for Aquaculture Production

Aquaculture Technical Committee (Aquaculture TC)

Made up of six (6) GLOBALG.A.P. retailer and six (6) producer members, the Aquaculture TC addresses key criteria on environmental measures (including biodiversity), animal welfare, and workers’ health and safety, in addition to food safety issues. As the GLOBALG.A.P. IFA standard for Aquaculture covers all aquaculture species from fish to crustaceans and molluscs and influences the entire production and distribution chain, the Aquaculture TC is also responsible for issues concerning traceability and the Chain of Custody standard.

The committee also works together with the Livestock TC on issues concerning the Compound Feed Manufacturing standard as well as the new add-on towards sustainability and social responsibility for feed manufacturers supplying farms with GLOBALG.A.P. certified production processes.
