Morpol Spółka Akcyjna of Poland has attained BAP certification, the Global Aquaculture Alliance announced in late February. It’s Poland’s first ever aquaculture facility to do so.

Located in Ustka on the coast of the Baltic Sea, the 95,000-square-meter facility employs about 3,700 people and processes more than 90,600 metric tons of salmon raw material annually, with the capacity to process more.

Morpol is owned by Marine Harvest Group, one of the world’s leading farmed salmon companies.

With the certification of Morpol Spółka Akcyjna, there are now five BAP-certified processing plants throughout Europe — two in Norway (salmon), one in the United Kingdom (shrimp) and one in Iceland (Arctic charr).
