MSC certified sustainable seafood

The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) is an international nonprofit dedicated to protecting the ocean and safeguarding seafood supplies for the future. For over 20 years, the MSC has worked with fisheries, scientists, seafood companies, and seafood shoppers to build a Big Blue Future and ensure that seafood can be enjoyed now and for generations to come.
