Aquaculture standards committee

The Aquaculture Standards Committee usually meets once per year. We aim to have a wide and representative spread of appropriate expertise on the committee together with consumer and public interest representatives. The Aquaculture Standards Committee's remit is to develop and keep under review our aquaculture standards and to deal with any relevant issues referred to the committee from licensees, Soil Association members, the public or Soil Association Certification Ltd.
