Since our last newsletter in January, three fisheries were certified, one was re-certified, and three entered full assessment in the Americas region which includes significant new volumes of lobster from Atlantic Canada.

  • The multi-species U.S. West Coast groundfish fishery gained certification. Thirteen species were certified including the first rockfish and skate in the MSC program.
  •  In March the Falkland Islands Toothfish longline fishery earned certification. This is the first fishery in the Falkland Islands to be certified.
