Substitution and mislabelling of fish and seafood are global problems. Retailers, brands and consumers need to be sure that the blue MSC label only appears on seafood from, certified sustainable fisheries.  

To provide this assurance, we have developed a set of requirements, set out in the MSC Chain of Custody Standard, [link to standard] which ensure MSC certified seafood is traceable from ocean to plate. To sell seafood with the blue MSC label, [Link to Sell certified sustainable seafood page] companies in the supply chain must be certified to this standard, and follow the requirements set out by the MSC.  

We regularly monitor the MSC certified supply chain, carrying out tracebacks and DNA testing, to ensure the integrity of MSC labelled products. 

Aquaculture and fish feed

Our Chain of Custody Standard is also used by the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) to ensure the integrity of farmed fish (aquaculture) products sold with the green ASC label.
