Marine Stewardship Council Seeks to Define 'Sustainable Fishing'

Jan 23,2007 SACN


FOR the first time since 1999, public comment is being sought to clarify the 23 criteria that together form the backbone of the world’s leading environmental standard for sustainable fishing.

As part of its ‘Quality and Consistency’ project, the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) is publishing 23 ‘draft intent statements’ –short, technical paragraphs that seek to help everyone involved in MSC fishery assessments to have clear expectations and a common understanding of what sustainable fishing looks like in practice.
