A new ASC standard is being developed for Feed, as well as an ‘aligned’ ASC Farm Standard based on the current 11 species-specific farm standards.
Reviews are currently under way for the Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS) Module, Shrimp, and the (‘sea lice level’) indicator 3.1.7 of the Salmon standard. Furthermore, a new project on Fish Welfare has been launched in September 2019, and the new ASC Metrics Methodology was launched in March 2020.
- NB: Two new (Flatfish and Tropical Marine Finfish) standards were launched on June 26, 2019.

Please go to those respective standards pages to view the latest versions of the standards.
