GLOBALG.A.P., a Germany-based provider of sustainability standard for Good Agricultural Practices, introduced a consumer label for fish and seafood from certified aquaculture.

The aim is to actively support customers from trade, industry and aquaculture with a clearly recognizable consumer label and a new online service.

GGN is the common short form for the "GLOBALG.A.P. Number," which identifies all farms participating in the certification scheme by GLOBALG.A.P.

The standard covers extensive requirements for food safety, animal welfare, occupational safety and environmental protection.As of March 31, there are 30 different species of fish and seafood from aquaculture in 28 countries currently certified.
