Find out about certified sustainable fisheries and those undergoing assessment against the MSC environmental standard for sustainable fishing.
Get involved and comment on a fishery in assessement. Your input can help ensure well-informed, robust fisheries assessments.
At each stage of a fishery assessment there is a chance for stakeholders to contribute - find out when and how.
A ‘fishery’ in the MSC program may include one or more ‘units of certification’, defined by reference to target species and stock, geographic area, method, gear, practice and/or vessel type.
If you are a stakeholder in a fishery, you are an essential source of information that will be needed to conduct a meaningful assessment of that fishery. Find out more about why you should get involved.
