What we do
The MSC works with scientists, fisheries, seafood producers and brands to promote sustainable fishing and safeguard seafood supplies for the future.
We set credible standards for sustainable fishing and supply chain traceability. Organisations meet these standards in order to demonstrate the sustainability of their products.
The blue MSC label makes it easy for everyone to choose seafood which has been caught by fisheries which care for the environment.
Work with fisheries
We offer fisheries a way to gain recognition and reward for good 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 all fisheries equal opportunities to enter MSC assessment.
