Sustainable aquaculture businesses engage in seafood production processes that demonstrate a minimal impact on the environment and maintain high standards of animal husbandry.

Each qualified business adheres to 10 sustainability criteria related to production inputs and outputs throughout the production process and over the life of the business.

BTA’s investment assessments utilize Ocean Wise Seafood’s recommendations, generated from analysis using Seafood Watch’s science-based quantitative scoring system, along with internal and independent advisory services. This multi-step assessment process is intended to ensure that all BTA portfolio companies maintain the highest standards of sustainability while offering investors an attractive risk-return profile.
