The course will be taught by Greg Brown, BAP program integrity manager; Ken Corpron, BAP program integrity analyst; Guy Ewing, a seafood processing specialist; Jeff Peterson, BAP program integrity advisor; and Avery Siciliano, BAP program integrity specialist.

A division of the Global Aquaculture Alliance, Best Aquaculture Practices is an international certification program based on achievable, science-based and continuously improved performance standards for the entire aquaculture supply chain — farms, hatcheries, processing plants and feed mills — that assure healthful foods produced through environmentally and socially responsible means. BAP certification is based on independent audits that evaluate compliance with the BAP standards developed by the Global Aquaculture Alliance.
