The Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) is a leading global certification and labelling program for responsibly farmed seafood (aquaculture).
ASC is an independent, non-profit organisation that was established in 2010 by WWF and IDH (Dutch Sustainable Trade Initiative) to manage a global set of standards for aquaculture.
The ASC aims to be the world's leading certification and labelling program for responsibly farmed seafood. The ASC is a global organisation working with aquaculture producers, seafood processors, retail and foodservice companies, scientists, conservation groups and the public to promote the best environmental and social choice in seafood.
The ASC's aquaculture certification program and seafood label recognises and rewards responsible aquaculture.
