Superior First has become the first land-based aquaculture and aquaponics facility to bag a Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certification.

The Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA) awards BAP certification on environmentally and socially responsible aquaculture companies.

Superior Fresh fish are fed a specially formulated diet free of hormones and antibiotics, said the GAA in the August announcement.  The fish produce ammonia and solids, and the solids are broken down from ammonia to nitrites and then to nitrates, making nutrients available for plant uptake. The nutrient-rich water is then pumped into the greenhouse for the leafy greens, which use the nutrients and, in turn, clean the water. The clean water is then pumped back into the aquaculture system.

“We are proud to be a part of the BAP program. Our personal standards and morals related to how we farm are backed up by a strong stamp that truly helps consumers understand that we are doing everything possible to raise healthy, safe and sustainable food,” said Superior Fresh President Brandon Gottsacker.

The BAP achievement is another first for the Wisconsin-based company.  In July, it achieved a milestone when its harvest of Atlantic salmon raised inland hit the US retail market for the first time.
