MSC

This seafood is MSC certified. This means that the fishery where it was caught has been audited by a third party and meets the MSC Fishery Standard for sustainability. The standard ensures that fish stocks are healthy, environmental impacts minimised, and effective fishery management is in place. All actors along the supply chain that sell on the seafood must have an MSC chain of custody certificate, to ensure their supply is certified, identifiable and separated. This ensures all the MSC labelled fish is wild, traceable and sustainable.
