AQUACULTURE STEWARDSHIP COUNCIL
We at Fiskano can offer ASC labeled fish and shellfish grown in a responsible and sustainable way. ASC Chain of Custody – Custody certification is a relatively new global environmental certification for farmed seafood. The label guarantees that the production is handled responsible and that it is possible to trace the fish back to where it was grown. The requirements for cultivation under ASC will vary slightly depending on the nature, location and method of cultivation. For cultivation to be ASC-certified, among other things, that the liner is fished sustainably and that water released from the culture is purified. It is also important to preserve habitats and biodiversity, and a good animal health prevention to reduce the use of for example antibiotics.
