Sustainability MSC / ASC

The MSC Fisheries Standard

The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) Standard is used to assess if a fishery is well-managed and sustainable.

The Standard reflects the most up-to-date understanding of internationally accepted fisheries science and management. 
They review and develop the MSC Fisheries Standard in consultation with scientists, the fishing industry and conservation groups.

 

The MSC Fisheries Standard has three core principles that every fishery must meet.

Principle 1: Sustainable fish stocks

  • Are enough fish left in the ocean? Fishing must be at a level that ensures it can continue indefinitely and the fish population can remain productive and healthy.

 

Principle 2: Minimising environmental impact

  • What are the impacts? Fishing activity must be managed carefully so that other species and habitats within the ecosystem remain healthy.
 

Principle 3: Effective fisheries management

  • Are operations well managed? MSC certified fisheries must comply with relevant laws and be able to adapt to changing environmental circumstances.
