Alaska fisheries earn re-certification

The US North Pacific halibut and the US North Pacific sablefish fisheries that operate in territorial waters off the coast of Alaska, Bering Sea and Gulf of Alaska have earned MSC re-certification. A client group comprised of the Fishing Vessel Owners Association and Deep Sea Fishermen’s Union entered the fisheries into re-certification. With re-certification, products from these fisheries can continue to carry the MSC ecolabel that assures buyers and consumers the seafood can be traced back to a MSC-certified sustainable fishery.
