Summary

There is a substantial chapter containing detailed and comprehensive organic standards for aquaculture. The Soil Association standards on aquaculture contain subsections on system management, organic conversion, eggs and youngstock, environmental management, managing holding facilities, managing water quality, feeding organic stock, maintaining high stock welfare, keeping stock healthy, transporting livestock, harvesting and slaughtering, and record keeping. We do not yet have Soil Association permission to upload very substantial sections of text from the Soil Association Organic Standards, so the file attached contains a list of the associated chapters and subsections together with the text of the first subsection on principles of organic aquaculture.

Difference

Soil Association standards contain a set of standards on aquaculture not included in the EU Regulation 2092/91. EU Regulation do not include any standards referring to aquaculture.

Justification

quaculture is a significant sector of food production. The existence of detailed standards enables the principles of organic food and farming to be put into practice in the fish farming sector, encouraging sustainability throughout the sector and making organic farmed fish available to the market, with consequent benefits to all aspects of sustainability.
