MARINTRUST AND GSA SIGN MOU

MARINTRUST AND GSA SIGN MOU

MarinTrust and  GSA sign MoU. The Global Seafood Alliance (GSA) and MarinTrust have signed a memorandum of understanding whereby the two organisations will work together to meet the goal of 75 percent of the world’s marine ingredients supplies being either certified, in assessment, in application or in the MarinTrust Improver Programme by 2025.

Both GSA and MarinTrust are standards holders. MarinTrust is the world’s leading certification programme for the marine ingredient value chain, owning the MarinTrust Standard for Responsible Supply, MarinTrust Chain of Custody for Responsible Supply and MarinTrust Improver Programme, while GSA (formerly the Global Aquaculture Alliance) owns the Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) and Best Seafood Practices (BSP) certification programmes as well as the Responsible Fishing Vessel Standard.

Inked at the East India Club in London on Nov. 2, the MoU formalises a long-standing relationship between GSA and MarinTrust and directly benefits the global seafood value chain by providing end-to-end assurances through third-party auditing and certification.
