Canadians are looking for a sustainable farm to produce a pesticide and chemical free food and Aquaponic farms fulfill this need.

Till today Aquaponic farm in Canada were approved to be FSMA CanadaGAP certified which made them fulfill the food safety requirement for retail stores.This certificate gave confidence to the customer that Aquaponic products are as safe as Hydroponic or field grown crops.

The current board of Directors at the CanadaGAP have decided to remove Aquaponic farms from Food Safety certification which would make these products  unable to be sold in the retail stores as the certification is minimum requirement.

Aquaponic is acceptable by GlobalGAP and world over it is considered food safe. A different standard applied in Canada would lead a higher quality product to be unavailable to Canadians in retail stores. We request the CanadaGAP to continue having Aquaponic in their approved list of industry.
