Peru Trout Farmer First to Join iBAP Programme

04 March 2015

PERU - Trout producer, Piscifactorías de los Andes, is the first company to apply for the Global Aquaculture Alliance’s new iBAP programme.

Piscifactorías de los Andes is a trout farming and processing operation located on Lake Titicaca in the Peruvian Andes, more than 3,300 meters above sea level.

Launched early this month, the iBAP programme- the “i” in “iBAP” represents “improver” - is designed to provide assistance and encouragement to aquaculture facilities interested in pursuing Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certification.

Facilities that enroll in iBAP agree to a step-by-step, deadline-driven improvement plan. iBAP incentivises facilities to make the improvements necessary to apply for BAP certification.

“Piscifactoria de los Andes’ enthusiasm to pursue BAP certification exemplifies the spirit and principles of the iBAP programme,” said Marcos Moya, BAP facilities development manager. “We look forward to working with the company.”
