MSC Science Series
The MSC Standards for sustainable fishing and seafood traceability exist to ensure the long term sustainability of fish stocks as well as the marine environments within which they operate. Using global best practice guidelines, our ambitious certification program works to contribute to the health of the world's oceans by recognising and rewarding sustainable fishing and seafood business practices.
As the fishing industry evolves and fishery science advances, it is essential that the MSC's standards continue to reflect the most up-to-date understanding of internationally accepted fishery science and best practice management.
The aim of the MSC Science Series is to share the latest scientific evidence behind our program. Drawing on the expertise of fisheries scientists, management consultants and economists, each open-access edition of the series features new research relating to fishery resources, marine ecosystems and habitats, fisheries management and seafood certification.
