The term aquaculture refers to the cultivation of aquatic organisms (plants and animals) in controlled aquatic environments, from ponds and man-made water systems on land, to rivers, lakes and managed areas of the ocean. Aquaculture can serve many purposes, both commercial, such as production of food, baitfish and fish for zoos and aquariums, and environmental, such as rebuilding populations and habitats.
While all aquaculture facilities require proper management, the importance of safety controls is particularly important during production of fish and seafood for human consumption. WQS-QIMA offers seafood producers, brands and retailers professional quality inspections, certifications and third-party audits that help them keep their supply chains in top shape, remain competitive, and meet regulatory requirements.
