Summary

Standards incorporate the farming of many different species in fresh, brackish and sea water. They deal with the following areas: the origin of the fish and aquatic animals, they forbid any modification including genetic modification. They require conservation of the water environment and the surrounding aquatic and terrestrial ecosystem, determine water quality, particularly the biological quality and protect from potential contamination or pollution of waters. (KEZ, Chapter: Fish and aquatic animals farming, 14.)
