ISO 12878:2012

Environmental monitoring of the impacts from marine finfish farms on soft bottom


This International Standard establishes an approach for sampling and empirical measurement of soft-bottom

impacts from marine finfish net pen farms, and gives examples of detailed procedures for how environmental

impacts from finfish net pen farm sites can be monitored in the field, including guidelines for quality assurance

of sampling protocols and safety. The emphasis of the environmental impact in this International Standard is

on eutrophication effects on the seabed.

This International Standard identifies ecological objectives, the indicators used, and the methodology and

design, and encompasses guidelines for quality assurance of sampling protocols and operational safety.
