First Crab Farm To Get BAP Certificate


Located in Huzhou City, Zhejiang Province, Zhejiang Aoling Aquatic Seeding Technology’s hairy crab farm has attained BAP certification, the world’s first crab farm to earn that distinction, according to the Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA).


“We are excited about bringing hairy crab into our BAP program,” said GAA Vice President Steve Hart.  “What makes this even more exciting is that this is the first BAP-certified species that will be marketed live, directly to Chinese consumers.  They will receive a box of live crabs with the BAP logo on the packaging, giving us the opportunity to begin promoting responsible aquaculture directly to consumers.”
