Through ASC certification certified farms demonstrate that they are well managed and minimise any adverse environmental and social impacts. Simply by selecting fish with the ASC logo consumers can be certain that their purchase has been responsibly produced. And, this consumer preference is the incentive for other producers to reduce their environmental and social impacts as well.
