SeaChoice Commends ASC’s Decision to Stop Making Changes to Standard Rules Behind Closed Doors

November 6, 2020 SeaChoice

SeaChoice welcomes the news that the Aquaculture Stewardship Council is going to open up its process for granting exemptions from standard requirements for the certification of farms. The ASC, one of the most recognized eco-certifications for farmed seafood, announced last week that it will stop making decisions on exemptions, termed ‘variances’, behind closed doors and instead seek input from civil society and technical experts.
