The MSC label was created more than 20 years ago by the Marine Stewardship Council in response to overfishing. This label is for wild fish and shellfish caught in fisheries which have been certified as sustainable by the MSC Fisheries Standard. The traceability of MSC products is guaranteed from the sea to the plate.
The MSC label guarantees sustainable fishing practices which protect the marine environment, along with the species and the fishermen who depend on it. It certifies:
- The long-term sustainability of fish stocks, with consideration for the life cycles of different species
- Environmental conservation through the implementation of best fishing practices
- Fishing management by means of efficient regulations
What’s more, the label’s collaboration with scientists ensures its credibility and reliability.
