When you see fish or seafood products with the MSC blue fish label, you can be sure they come from a sustainable fishery that has met the MSC Fisheries Standard. Businesses trading in these products have met our Chain of Custody Standard for traceability.
The Fisheries Standard measures the sustainability of wild-capture fisheries. The Standard is open to all wild-capture fisheries, including those from the developing world.
The Chain of Custody Standard ensures the blue MSC label is only displayed on seafood that's traceable to an MSC certified sustainable fishery.
The ASC-MSC Seaweed Standard
The joint ASC-MSC Seaweed Standard rewards environmentally sustainable and socially responsible seaweed production. It is open to cultured and wild harvest seaweed operations worldwide.
The MSC Standards meet international best practice guidelines for certification and ecolabeling. The Standards were developed through consultation with the fishing industry, scientists, conservationists, experts, and stakeholders.
