A Protocol for the Asian Seafood Industry
ASIC is developing an incentivized improvement tool for Asian crab to enable the Asian seafood industry to recognize the improvements made by the industry at both the yellow or “Good Alternative” and green or “Best Choice” levels.
Inspired by the development of the Southeast Asian Shrimp Aquaculture Improvement Protocol project, ASIC is developing the Asian Crab Improvement Protocol or ACIP. The ACIP program follows the same model used to develop SEASAIP and features an ISEAL compliant process as well as multiple levels including ASIC Crab Yellow (equivalent to a “Good Alternative” and ASIC Crab Green (equivalent to a “Best Choice”). Stakeholders throughout the Asian crab supply chain are collaborating on this initiative.
