MCS Aquaculture Officer set to influence higher standards in industry
Dawn Purchase, MCS Aquaculture Officer, has accepted an invitation to join the Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA) Standards Oversight Committee.
GAA promotes responsible practices across the aquaculture industry and coordinates the development of Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certification standards for aquaculture facilities.
The BAP standards are developed and updated via species-specific technical committees under the guidance of the Standards Oversight Committee, made up of members with broad stakeholder representation.
Dawn says " I am delighted to accept the invitation to join the Standards Oversight Committee. It reflects the high regard that MCS is held in with regard to driving the aquaculture industry towards better environmental practice. Being part of the GAA will allow MCS to influence developing standards for a range of species to comprehensively address issues of environmental concern. We are keen to make sure that such standard development compliments our other work areas including responsible feed supply through both the International Fishmeal and Fish Oil Organisation Responsible Supply Standard and our advocacy work on alternative feed ingredients."
