The Framework About


This seafood is MSC certified. This means that the fishery where the seafood was caught has been audited by a third party and meets the MSC Fishery Standard. The standard monitors that fish stocks are healthy, environmental impacts are reduced, and effective fishery management is in place. All actors along the supply chain that sells the seafood must have an MSC chain of custody certificate, to ensure their supply is certified, identifiable, and separated. This ensures all the MSC-labelled fish is wild, traceable, and meets the MSC standard.
