Who We Are
Caretakers of our Oceans and Waterways
One billion people worldwide rely on seafood as their primary source of protein. Seafood is critical to both meeting global nutrition needs and supporting meaningful livelihoods. At Best Seafood Practices, we ensure wild seafood has been caught and processed in an ethical manner, respecting the wellbeing and security of all employees across the supply chain.
Where Advocacy
Meets Assurances

The Global Seafood Alliance (GSA) is an international nonprofit trade association dedicated to advancing responsible seafood practices through advocacy, education, and third-party assurances.

BSP provides assurances that wild seafood has been harvested and processed in an ethical manner through its third-party certification program.

BAP ensures that aquaculture is practiced responsibly through a robust third-party certification program that covers the entire production chain.
