May 2, 2014 to July 2, 2014 (expired): How does the organic movement define what "organic" means for aquaculture?

Organic aquaculture is a sector in fast development. Several countries now have regulations for organic aquaculture and more countries are developing them. Can the “organic” concept of organic really accomodate aquaculture, and if so, on what scale? 

For example, many species currently raised in organic aquaculture systems are carnivorous and are fed on leftovers from so-called 'sustainable fisheries', i.e. feed that is not certified organic and that may negatively impact wild fish stocks and ecosystems. Is 'organic' the best concept to describe those systems?
