Thanks to the United States’s Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Organic Standard Board, the word “Organic” has an official definition in the United States:
An ecological production management system that promotes and enhances biodiversity, biological cycles, and soil biological activities . It is based on minimal use of off-farm inputs and on management practices that restore, maintain and enhance ecological harmony.
The variety of species produced in aquacultural systems and vast differences in cultural requirements for finfish, shellfish, mollusks, and aquatic plants add to the complexity of defining “organic” for this sector. Some species and some production systems may prove quite difficult to adapt to a traditional “organic” system.
Organic aquaculture also aims to provide fish and other products that are ecologically, economically and socially sound.

Today, organic aquaculture production takes place primarily in Europe, where certified organic salmon, carp, and trout are grown and sold. Certified organic mussels, Tiger shrimp, white shrimp, and tilapia also are cultured in such diverse places as Vietnam, Peru, Ecuador, Chile, New Zealand, and Israel.
