Since the launch of its BAP Feed Mill standard in 2010, Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA) has certified 21 feed mills in Asia, 15 in the Americas and one in the Middle East. The organisation is now looking at linking with other standards to certify the entire supply chain.

At the IFFO conference in Berlin, Germany this week, Daniel Lee, BAP Standard coordinator for GAA explained that a significant milestone was passed in June 2015, when the organisation increased the requirement for certified fishmeal and fish oil of reduction fishery origin to 50%.

The BAP Feed Mill Standard has already incorporated the IFFO Responsible Supply (RS) standard to promote sustainable sourcing of marine ingredients, and is looking to interlink with other certification programs such as the Seafish Responsible Fishing programme which would enable it to include social assurance in the supply chain.
