GAA Catfish Farm Certification Now Available
Aquaculture farms that raise channel or blue catfish in ponds can now participate in Best Aquaculture Practices certification. The complete certification application/audit and guideline forms are available on the "Application Forms" page of the Aquaculture Certification Council website. The new standards are also posted on the GAA website at www.gaalliance.org/bapctfsh.html.

Like the BAP standards for shrimp farms, the channel catfish standards address environmental and social responsibility, food safety and traceability through quantitative guidelines and auditing procedures. Separate BAP standards for Pangasius are under development. The culture of channel catfish in systems other than ponds will be addressed in future updates to the current standards.
