- Michiel Fransen, Standards & Certification Coordinator, Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC),Utrecht, The Netherlands

The Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) is an independent not-for-profit certification & labelling program that promotes responsible practise in aquaculture. Next to the current ASC Farm Standards, ASC is also developing a Feed Standard for which feed mills can get certified. Within this project, ASC is developing a standard that sets requirements for sourcing of responsibly produced ingredients for fish feed. This is a multi-stakeholder project, with over 50 people involved in several committees. The expected release date is Q1-2016. Currently the initial draft is open for public feedback.
