The GLOBALG.A.P. Aquaculture Standard operates under a third party accredited certification system worldwide. All stages of production must be certified: feed, seedlings, farming and post-harvest activities. The main pillars for responsible sourcing are covered: food safety (only standard recognized for food safety at farm level): environment and biodiversity, animal welfare, occupational health & safety and workerså« welfare. This last aspect is verified through the GLOBALG.A.P. Risk Assessment on Social Practices – GRASP. It serves as an initial evaluation of the social performance and may avoid unnecessary social audits – which brings high costs of certification. It covers everyone on the farm: permanent employees and seasonal workers. Main core areas include worker representation: fair and regular wages: no child labor: schooling for all children living on the farm: no discrimination. The outcome is transparently available to the market participants.
