Fish From The Heart

ABOUT FISHCARE

Our Postelsia division, which became a part of the Where Food Comes From family in 2020, has developed the FishCARE Standard for United States land-based aquaculture farmers.

 

Postelsia specializes in placed-based seafood sustainability initiatives and drives transformative change across global seafood supply chains.  The FishCARE Standard and verification process is intended to certify farmers who are going above and beyond current industry standards when it comes to animal care, environmental and community aspects, while ensuring that traceabiity maintains intact. 

 

FishCARE was built for aquaculture farmers with pond systems, raceways, flow through systems and closed containment systems. 

 

Marine open net pen and shellfish farms are not included in FishCARE.
