Working with other standard holders that share the same objectives for responsibility in the seafood industry is key for the success of the assurance of the industry.
- The Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) standard requires that 75% of marine ingredients shall be from certified sources (MSC or MarinTrust), or FIPs, from 2025, thus raising its previous 50 % bar. The Sustainable Fisheries Partnership recognise MarinTrust.
- Global GAP requires that 60% of marine ingredients shall come from certified sources (MSC or MarinTrust), or FIPs. The requirement will reach 75% as of 1 January 2025. The Sustainable Fisheries Partnership recognise MarinTrust.
- The Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC)’s new Feed Standard announced in June 2021 uses an improvement model for marine ingredients which requires feed mills to source from more sustainable fisheries overtime. “MSC and MarinTrust, both ISEAL Code Compliant members, play a crucial role in this mechanism and form the keystepping stones for improvement” the ASC says. Intermediate steps are recognized FIP programmes
