For more than 20 years fisheries, scientists, consumers and industry have been part of a collective effort to make sure our oceans are fished sustainably.
Since we were founded in 1997, fisheries responsible for nearly 15% of global wild marine catch have been certified to the MSC Fisheries Standard. Certification is helping to grow and maintain the number of sustainable fish populations.
To remain certified, fisheries have made more than 1,600 improvements to their performance and management to date.
Worldwide, approximately 38,000 sites, including supermarket chains, restaurants, fishmongers and hotels are now certified to sell seafood with the MSC blue fish tick label.

As well as fishing healthy populations, fisheries must show they are managing their impacts on habitats and other marine species.
