Marine Stewardship Council sets 20 percent global coverage goal

Staff Writer |
The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) aims to have at least 20 percent of the world’s fisheries certified to its sustainability standard by 2020, up from the current level of 12 percent.

MSC were one of a number of companies and organisations from across the seafood supply chain to share a raft of commitments in support of the Our Ocean conference, hosted by the European Union and opening in Malta.

The 2-day meeting aims to inspire joint solutions and ambitious commitments in managing our oceans sustainably.

The 2020 Leaders for a Living Ocean, an initiative from the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), brings together 27 companies from around the world who are committed to increasing supply, trade and availability of certified, traceable, sustainable seafood.

The alliance builds on the groundswell of more than 300 fishing operations and 3,000 supply chain businesses, including 80 major retailers, committed to producing and selling seafood certified to the MSC standards.
