The MSC runs an exciting and ambitious program, working with partners to transform the world's seafood markets to a sustainable basis.
With experts we developed standards for sustainable fishing and seafood traceability. They ensure that MSC-labelled seafood comes from, and can be traced back to, a sustainable fishery.
MSC meets the highest benchmarks for credible certification and ecolabelling, including the UN Food and Agriculture Organization guidelines and the ISEAL Code.
