Aquaculture Stewardship Council
Service Provider in Utrecht
Founded in 2010 by WWF and IDH (Dutch Sustainable Trade Initiative) the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) is an independent not for profit organisation with global influence. ASC aims to be the world's leading certification and labelling programme for responsibly farmed seafood. The ASCs primary role is to manage the global standards for responsible aquaculture, which were developed by the WWF Aquaculture Dialogues. With its partners, the ASC runs an ambitious programme to transform the world's seafood markets and promote the best environmental and social aquaculture performance. This means increasing the availability of certified responsibly produced seafood to buyers and promoting the use of the ASC logo. The logo sends a strong message to consumers about the environmental and social integrity of the product they are purchasing.
