GAA Publishes Its 2019 Annual Report

The Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA) is pleased to announce that it has published its 2019 annual report.

Released today, the 36-page 2019 annual report lays out the 23-year-old organization’s accomplishments in 2019 and goals for both its pre-competitive advocacy and education work as well as its industry-leading third-party aquaculture certification program, Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP). Each activity outlined in the report supports progress toward GAA’s vision: A world that embraces and enables the role of responsibly farmed seafood in meeting global nutrition needs.

Growth in membership and growth in the BAP program (at the end of 2019 there were 2,681 BAP-certified processing plants, farms, hatcheries and feed mills worldwide, up almost 15 percent from 2018) are among the highlights of the report. It also includes a letter from GAA President George Chamberlain, updates on innovation and collaboration, a section on GAA’s alignment with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and testimonials from key industry stakeholders.
