ASC Certifies 200 Aquaculture Companies


The Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) has now certified more than 200 aquatic farms in 28 countries.  The commitment of retailers and seafood brands to ASC standards has been particularly strong.  For example, AEON, the largest retailer in Asia, has recently made ASC certified farmed shrimp products available in each of its retail outlets in Japan.
