The Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) has launched its largest public-facing marketing campaign ever that emphasizes local-market promotions. The organization seeks to show the facts of sustainable aquaculture to consumers.

The "New Way to Seafood" campaign will aim to "dispel falsehoods and public misconceptions about seafood and showcase the work that the ASC has been performing since the program's inception", according to the organization.

In addition, they will try to put ASC-certified seafood into dining halls of universities and colleges across the US. The ASC will visit 22 college campuses in March, nationwide, to demonstrate products raised via responsible aquaculture. This way, they will reach younger customers doubts and concerns about aquaculture.
