CARE Certified

Postelsia has developed the CARE Certfied Standard
for land-based aquaculture farmers in the United States.

The CARE Certified Standard and verification process is intended to certify farmers who are going above and beyond current industry standards when it comes to animal care, environmental and community aspects, while ensuring that traceability remains intact.


CARE Certified was built for aquaculture farmers with pond systems, raceways, flow through systems and closed containment systems.


Marine open net pen and shellfish farms are not included in CARE Certified for the aquaculture industry.
