Best Aquaculture Practices Certification
Of Production Processes For Seafood Buyers

The Global Aquaculture Alliance Best Aquaculture Practices standards in a certification system that combines site inspections and effluent sampling with sanitary controls, therapeutic controls and traceability.
Part of BAP's mission is to help educate the aquaculture public regarding the benefits of applying Best Aquaculture Practices and the advancing scientific technology that directs them. By implementing BAP standards, program participants can better meet the demands of the growing global market for wholesome seafood produced in an environmentally and socially responsible manner.
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.
