The Marine Stewardship Council is an international organisation that works with fisheries, seafood companies, scientists, conservation groups and the public to promote the best environmental choice in seafood.
MSC has developed credible and comprehensive principles for sustainable fishing and seafood traceability and awards its blue eco-label to fisheries that comply with these stringent standards. The three fundamental principles are based on the FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries as well as other international conservation instruments and parameters. The first principle deals with sustainable fish stocks. The second principle deals with the wider impacts on the ecosystem on which the stock depends. The final principle focuses on effective fisheries management. These three principles are supported by 31 more detailed criteria.
Before the MSC eco-label can be used on fish products, verification that the product originated from a fishery certified to the MSC Standard must take place.
