The blue MSC label: sustainable, traceable, wild seafood

'Choose MSC' image with blue MSC label
You can trust that fish and seafood with the blue MSC label has been responsibly caught by a certified sustainable fishery.

Choosing seafood with the blue MSC label
helps ensure fish for tomorrow

Only seafood from fisheries that meet our strict standard for sustainability can be sold with the blue MSC label. These fisheries ensure that fish are caught at levels that allow fish populations and the ecosystems on which they depend to remain healthy and productive for the future.

As more consumers, restaurants and retailers choose MSC certified sustainable seafood, other fisheries are encouraged to meet the standard.

MSC labelled fish is handled with care

All along the supply chain, from ocean to plate, MSC certified fish and seafood is separated from non-certified. It is clearly labelled and can be traced back to a certified sustainable source.
 


You can trust that fish is what the label says it is

DNA testing shows that MSC labelled products are correctly labelled, so you can trust that the fish really is what its packaging or menu says it is.
