The MSC is an international non-profit organisation addressing the problem of unsustainable fishing, and safeguarding seafood supplies for the future.
Using our fisheries certification and seafood labelling program, the MSC works with partners to promote sustainable fishing and transform markets.
The MSC’s certification and ecolabelling program enables everybody to play a part in securing a healthy future for our oceans.

The MSC Standards define the requirements for fisheries to be certified as sustainable and for business to trade in certified seafood.
Sustainable fishing means healthy fish stocks, minimal ecosystem impacts and effective management. To be MSC certified, fisheries must meet all these criteria.
MSC meets the highest benchmarks for credible certification and ecolabelling, including the UN Food and Agriculture Organization guidelines and the ISEAL Code.
