Seafish itself is an awarding organisation (AO) for some fish specific training courses and qualifications. Seafish's status as an AO is largely informal, though our qualifications are widely recognised.

Seafish and the Seafood Training Academy work closely with other, Nationally Recognised Awarding Organisations such as the Royal Environmental Health Institute for Scotland REHIS), the Chartered Institute for Environmental Health and Food and Drink Qualifications Ltd. Some of our Partners work closely with other bodies such as City and Guilds.
