Certified Quality Aquaculture (CQA) programme

Our Certified Quality Aquaculture (CQA) programme supports the production of high-class farmed Irish seafood and provides a means of differentiating aquaculture products in the marketplace through eco, organic and quality labelling.

About the CQA programme

Our CQA programme was developed by a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) with representatives from all parts of the supply chain, from feed to fork. It is a business-to-customer assurance, which is managed according to ISO 17065, and uses aquaculture facilities as its unit of certification.
