Farm, Hatchery, Seafood Processing Plant and Feed Mill Certifications

To apply for Best Aquaculture Practices certification, click below to download the Certification Application Form and Guidelines for BAP Standards appropriate to your facility. Print the forms, complete the information requested and return to the BAP office with the U.S. $500 registration fee to enter the program.  Open the excel document, fill out on your computer, save the document to your computer and email it to the BAP office when it is complete.
 

Please note that the new multi-species farm standards apply to all types of production systems for finfish and crustaceans, excluding cage-raised salmonids, which retain separate BAP standards. The new standards replace the species-specific standards previously established for shrimp, tilapia, Pangasius and channel catfish. The multi-species standards focus on culture systems, but maintain unique species-related aspects where applicable, through supplements.

The new BAP standards apply to species that include but are not limited to seabass, sea bream, cobia, seriola, trout, grouper, barramundi, perch, carp, flounder, turbot, striped bass, crabs, freshwater prawns and crawfish.

For farms that are currently BAP certified, there will be a transition period to adapt to the new standards. The new standards will become mandatory for currently BAP-certified farms on January 1, 2014. For new farms not already BAP certified, the multi-species standards are effective immediately.
