Top Story: Monterey Bay lists BAP farmed shrimp as a ‘good alternative’

In a major endorsement of GAA’s Best Aquaculture Practices, the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch program has endorsed BAP farmed shrimp. The determination came after an extensive evaluation by the Seafood Watch science staff. The process began more than two years ago when Seafood Watch business partners sought guidance in navigating a marketplace of proliferating global eco-certification programs. The GAA strengthened its certification requirements for habitat mitigation, water discharge and escapes to meet Seafood Watch requirements.
