MarinTrust is a unique international program for the certification of marine ingredients.
"Defend best practices for marine ingredients"
"Make marine ingredients recognized as the best and most important source of animal and human nutrition."
"Improve global responsibility for the supply and production of marine ingredients."
Our goal is to continue to improve responsible sourcing and production of global marine ingredients through an accessible certification program.
Our ambition is that by 2025, 75% of all marine ingredients are certified by MarinTrust.
Internationally credible assessment program
MarinTrust works with third-party accredited certification bodies (ISO 17065) that audit fishmeal and fish oil-producing factories and assess the responsibility of fisheries.
The key principles of the MarinTrust standard are responsible sourcing and responsible production, with full traceability and product segregation as key requirements.
Third party recognition
MarinTrust has the largest market share, with more than half of world production now certified by MarinTrust. The standard is recognized and supported throughout the marine ingredient value chain and in aquaculture certification programs that include BAP, ASC, and Global GAP, as well as feed manufacturers, retailers, and pet food manufacturers.
The MarinTrust program is integrated into supply policies and has the support of international NGOs such as WWF, the Sustainable Fisheries Association and CeDePesca.
Credibility is enhanced through ISEAL membership which guarantees the value chain that the standard has been developed using a globally recognized framework and complies with ISEAL's codes of good practice related to assurance, evaluation of impacts and monitoring.
