Fisheries' experiences

“We are certain that we have made the right decision in applying for assessment as the MSC standard is considered the world’s most rigorous and comprehensive set of criteria for sustainable fishing and the MSC ecolabel has a high level of acceptance and recognition.” - Marcin Radkowski, president of the Kołobrzeska Grupa Producentów Ryb 

“Ecolabelling is becoming increasingly important. We believe an external audit of our fisheries and management systems will increase our credibility in the market place and at the same time contribute to preventing any disadvantageous development in the fisheries.”  Audun Maråk, Managing Director, Fiskebåt, Norway
