Arctic Fish is a proud bearer of the certification the ASC gives out to fish farms that match very strict and specific requirements.
The Aquaculture Stewardship Council is an independent, international non-profit organisation that manages the world’s leading certification and labelling programme for responsible aquaculture.
The ASC also ensures that the social rights and safety of those who work on the farms and live in the local communities are safeguarded. Employees working on ASC certified farms must have fair working conditions and contracts as mandated by the International Labour Organization. No child labour is permitted, and all workers must have free association and access to a safe work environment.
To obtain such a certificate a company must meet very high standards set by the organization.
