What we do
The MSC runs an exciting and ambitious program, working with partners to transform the world's seafood markets and promote sustainable fishing practices.
Our vision is for the world's oceans to be teeming with life, and seafood supplies safeguarded for this and future generations.
Our credible standards for sustainable fishing and seafood traceability seek to increase the availability of certified sustainable seafood. Our distinctive blue ecolabel makes it easy for everyone to take part.
Work with fisheries
We offer fisheries around the world a way to gain recognition and reward for environmental management. Partnership with fisheries helps create a market for sustainable seafood and offers other fisheries incentives to change.

Work with developing countries
Half of the world's seafood comes from developing countries, where millions rely on fish as a vital source of nutrition and income. We work with partners to give fisheries from developing countries equal opportunities to enter assessment for MSC certification.
Work with retailers
We have joined forces with some of the world's leading retailers, brands and seafood businesses. Many have placed the MSC program at the centre of their sustainable seafood policies.
