We meet the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) Principles and Criteria for Sustainable Fishing. Our fishery is well managed and sustainable.
We were officially certified by the Marine Stewardship Council, an independent standard-setting organization that ensures fish are caught according to strict methods that avoid overfishing and bycatch (the unintended capture of other fish, seabirds, and marine mammals). The World Wildlife Fund sponsored the assessment of the fishery, hailing the move as a hopeful sign for dramatically declining tuna stocks, fishing livelihoods, and food security.
Measurable results are the name of the game
If we want our grandchildren to have tuna on their dinner plates and in the sea, sustainable tuna fishing practices must be adoptedMeredith LopuchCommunity Fisheries Programme Director with WWF-US.
