Marine Aquarium Council (MAC) Certification

Marine Aquarium Council (MAC) Certification

Ecology & Sustainability

independent Certification

The Marine Aquarium Council was created in 1998 by key stakeholders to provide voluntary standards and an eco-labeling system for the marine aquarium trade. Since then, MAC has worked with fisheries, industry operators, and stakeholders to develop certification programs at 21 fisheries in the Philippines, Indonesia, Fiji, Hawaii, and the UK, covering over 400,000 hectares of waters, 50,000 hectares of reefs, and 1,000 hectares of no-take zones. Nearly 100 certificates have been issued to fisheries, importers, exporters, and retailers to date across Southeast Asia, North America, and Europe. Our programs have helped to achieve direct and indirect social, conservation, and economic benefits in source countries while, at the same time, increasing the number of certified organisms channeled to hobbyists worldwide.

Featured Certification

Eco-efficiency analysis examines the entire life cycle of a product or process “from cradle to grave“, i.e. all the way from raw materials sourcing, to product manufacture and use, to disposal. BASF established this holistic method as early as 1996 and was one of the first companies in the chemical industry to do so. Eco-efficiency analysis is validated by TÜV- (German technical inspection and certification organization) and by NSF (National Sanitation Fundation).
