Organic aquaculture

Organic aquaculture

Aquaculture contributes to human nutrition throughout the world but also can have a detrimental affect on the natural environment and fall short of requirements with respect to animal welfare; even the source of fodder is often not unproblematic and with a poor record of transparency. When it drafted its standards for organic aquaculture back in 1996, the first ever to have been produced, Naturland created an alternative which not only satisfied requirements with respect to animal welfare and the environment but also considered social aspects a standard to be met for certification.

This has made the Naturland standards for organic aquaculture, which are subject to constant revision with input from the free exchange of ideas with scientific bodies and practitioners, the leading standards they are still even today. Naturland certifies over a dozen different species the world over. These include European trout and Atlantic salmon but apply mainly to mussels, warm water prawns, macroalgae and, for some time now, microalgae, which are gaining ever more in importance both in the field of human nutrition and in the fish fodder industry.
