MSC Fisheries Standard





MSC Fisheries Standard

Certificate Description

The MSC Fisheries Standard is used to assess if a fishery is well-managed and sustainable.

The Standard reflects the most up-to-date understanding of internationally accepted fisheries science and management. Certification to the MSC Fisheries Standard is voluntary. It’s open to all fisheries who catch marine or freshwater organisms in the wild. This includes most types of fish and shellfish.

The standard is developed by the Marine Stewardship Council, an independent non-profit organization which sets a standard for sustainable fishing.
