National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) Aquaculture Standards

niaz policy letters, Publications

NAMA urges the NOSB to reject the Proposed Organic Aquaculture Standards: Fish Feed and Related Management Issues, and Net Pens and Related Management Issues. The latest round of the development of Organic Aquaculture standards — NOSB Livestock Committee Proposed Organic Aquaculture Standards for Net Pens and Fish Feed — does not comply with organic principles. Adoption of both proposals would fatally undercut any proposed USDA organic aquaculture standard and we urge the full Board to reject them.
