India Embraces the GLOBALG.A.P. Aquaculture Standard09 September 2013
INDIA - With the first GLOBALG.A.P. certified aquaculture producer in India, the country joins a worldwide network of producers committed to good aquaculture practices through the GLOBALG.A.P. Aquaculture Standard.
Aquaculture is the fastest growing food production industry in the world. Like all other forms of agriculture it too faces the challenge of meeting consumer demand for food that is farmed safely and responsibly.
More and more aquaculture producers and brand owners around the world are choosing the GLOBALG.A.P. Aquaculture Standard as the best way to meet that challenge, as it encourages the production and marketing of safe food while protecting scarce resources.
The GLOBALG.A.P. Aquaculture Standard covers the entire production chain, from broodstock, seedlings and feed suppliers to farming, harvesting and processing and applies to all types of fish, crustaceans and molluscs.
It is a universal mark of Good Aquaculture Practice and serves as a practical manual for any aquaculture producer and brand owner, ensuring food safety, minimal environmental impact, and compliance with animal welfare and worker health and safety requirements.
