In a developing sector, organic aquaculture involves a range of marine species, including fish, seaweed, and bivalves. As global demand for fish increases and the industry expands, organic aquaculture serves as a sustainable example.
IFOAM Aquaculture pursues IFOAM - Organics International’s sector-relevant examples and represents its members both internally to the organization and externally to interested stakeholders.
The platform also facilitates information exchange between IFOAM members, addresses standards and certification matters, develops positions on issues as needed, and advises the World Board and other committees on anything aquaculture.
Through its efforts, the platform secures sustainable aquatic systems to foster biodiversity, promote animal welfare and respect for all aquatic life, protect sensitive habitats, minimize pollution, and enhance water resources and quality.
