There is a huge demand for tropical shrimp, unfortunately the aquaculture has also several problems. ASC-shrimp are available since 2015. The certification program of ASCASC:
Aquaculture Stewardship Council, a worldwide eco-label for responsible cultivated fish. rewards aquaculture activities that target protection of the environment and social responsibility.
The creation of the ASC standard is unique for the dialogue between the many stakeholders. This has led to a standard that is strict and realistic and they handle the most important negative effects of shrimp aquaculture. For example, that the waste products don’t burden the environment too much, the amount of escapes of shrimp, the abuse of antibiotics and whether the company is run in a socially responsible way.
