This study - How Green is Your Eco-Label? A Comparison of the Environmental Benefits of Marine Aquaculture Standards - uses a well-established methodology, refined by the 2010 Global Aquaculture Performance Index (GAPI), to determine numerical scores of environmental performance for 20 marine finfish aquaculture standards. Wile a number of previous assessments have offered important insight on the sustainability of standards, this is the first to quantitatively assess their ecological impact.
