Enable the positive impact of sustainable aquaculture with GSA BAP certification

In 2021, the Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA) announced that it has officially changed its name to Global Seafood Alliance (GSA).

Since its inception, the Global Seafood Alliance (GSA) worked with stakeholders to bring the ethos of responsible aquaculture development to as many producers as possible. To achieve this, they created the comprehensive Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certification standard.
