For more than 20 years fisheries, scientists, consumers and industry have been part of a collective effort to make sure our oceans are fished sustainably.
Fisheries responsible for 12% of wild marine catch have been certified to the MSC Fisheries Standard. Certification is helping to grow and maintain the number of sustainable fish populations.
To remain certified, fisheries have made more than 1,200 improvements to their performance and management to date.
Worldwide, more than 38,000 sites, including supermarket chains, restaurants, fishmongers and hotels are now certified to sell seafood with the blue MSC label.
