The MSC standard is for wild-capture fisheries.

Marine Produce Australia’s Cone Bay Ocean Barramundi, WA’s largest finfish aquaculture enterprise, will have the opportunity to gain independent third party certification in due course. As yet no decision has been made on the certification body, however one of the organisations that will be considered is the Aquaculture Stewardship Council, which is currently developing a standard for Barramundi.
