The Southeast Asian Shrimp Aquaculture Improvement Protocol or SEASAIP is one of the first direct attempts to adapt sustainability programs created in other markets for the Asian seafood industry.

ASIC has succeeded in developing a draft tool that combines some of the existing standards that producers have used with elements of a program designed by Seafood Watch to offer a ladder for improvement that starts with the lowest “rung” of the “Good Alternative” category and ultimately will guide producers up to a green or “Best Choice” level. 
  
The goal of the SEASAIP program is better reconciliation between the desires of the marketplace and the realities facing producers on the ground.
