14/10/2014: Helping Latvian seafood consumers choose responsibly

Seafood shoppers in Latvia can now choose responsibly farmed fish easily with the help of the new edition of the Latvian seafood guide.

For the first time, the guide features information about the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) programme for responsible aquaculture.

The launch of ASC in Latvia’s seafood guide follows the introduction of the ASC logo in the Dutch, Swedish, Indonesian, Spanish, Belgian, Finnish, and Hong Kong editions.
“We have had a very positive response to the ASC from the market. This year alone, ASC labelled products have been introduced in 40 new countries across five continents. And, since recently ASC certified pangasius became available in Latvia as well”, said Esther Luiten, ASC’s Commercial Manager.

“I would like to extend thanks to all the companies that are supporting ASC and the certified farms. Their commitment and faith in our programme has a direct impact on moving aquaculture towards environmental and social responsibility.”
