Marine Stewardship Council sets up office in Singapore to promote sustainable seafood [News]
By June Yang, Today, 29 Oct 2012.
The sustainable seafood industry in the region is set to get a boost with the launch of Asia’s first branch of the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) here.
The MSC is a international, non-profit organisation that runs the world’s only certification and ecolabeling program for wild-capture fisheries.
In addition to the Singapore office, it already has branches in London, Seattle, Tokyo, Sydney, The Hague. Glasgow, Cape Town, Paris, Madrid and Stockholm.
Seafood that has earned the MSC ecolabel has been tracked through the supply chain to come from fisheries that are certified to fish responsibly and sustainably.
