Control

All facilities certified to the Organic Standard, will be checked minimum once per year, by an unannounced visit. Water samples will be taken, and protocols and log books, as required according to the Organic Sea standard will be checked. If critical errors are detected, then the producer will loose the organic Sea certification. Minor faults, will result in more frequent checks at the expense of the producer.

 

The producers who are registered and certified to the Organic Sea standard, are paying an annual fee of 1500 EUR, and further a volume fee of 0,01 per produced kilo of fish.

 

Organic sea is a non profit organisation. The fees collected will finance expenses, for administration, control, R&D projects, marketing & public relation. The profits generated, will be donated for projects with focus on restocking or improving conditions for natural fish populations.
