Brown crab fishery to undergo MSC assessment
The decision has been welcomed by UK-owned Young’s Seafood as a major development in UK sustainable fishing.
As part of its Fish for Life corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme, Young’s have been an active participant in the Fishery Improvement Project (FIP), which was established to enable the brown crab fishery to work towards MSC certification.
David Parker, head of CSR for Young’s, said: “We’re absolutely delighted that the hard work of the Orkney fishery has finally been recognised and rewarded.
“Young’s are incredibly grateful that the fishery’s commitment to sustainability will ensure that Orkney crab will be available both now and for the future.” ■
