Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP)
BAP is the world’s most trusted, comprehensive and proven third-party aquaculture certification program. We’ve been improving the environmental, social and economic performance of the aquaculture supply chain and growing the global supply of responsibly farmed seafood since 2002.
Best Aquaculture Practices offers a primarily 'process' certification. Successful participation in the Best Aquaculture Practices program is visually represented by limited use of the BAP certification mark .
BAP currently certifies shrimp hatcheries, shrimp, tilapia, channel catfish, pangasius and salmon farms, feed mills and seafood processing plants to include shrimp, channel catfish, tilapia, pangasius and salmon.
