ASC (Aquaculture Stewardship Council) is an international non-profit organization that sets environmental and social standards to certify responsible and well-managed fish farms. This contributes to the availability of seafood, the health of the oceans and the maintenance of local communities that rely on this business in the long-term.
The ASC standard is recognized worldwide as the most restrictive and credible. Thanks to this, consumers are confident that ASC certified fish and seafood come from sustainable sources that protect the environment. Any organization that wants to use ASC logo must go through the supply chain certification process conducted by an independent certification body.
Almost all Marine Harvest farms (and all of them by 2020) are certified as meeting the ASC standard, which means that our fish grow in conditions that are optimal both for the fish and for the environment.
The certificate also confirms our strict compliance with fish feeding requirements. Our fish is an antibiotic-free product.
