MSC Certification for Chilean langostino lobster fisheries
The MSC fishery certification, which is valid for five years, certifies that the Camanchaca Pesca red and yellow langostino lobster fisheries are keeping stock biomass healthy, while respecting the marine ecosystem.
“The MSC certification is very important to our company, especially because it supports that the langostino lobster fishing operations are conducted in a responsible and sustainable manner,” said Ricardo García, Camanchaca Pesca's CEO.
MSC certification is an important milestone for the company and for the MSC because only eight fisheries have obtained MSC recognition so far in South America. Camanchaca Pesca is the sixth fishery to obtain certification in Chile. ■
