The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) is an international non-profit organization that administers the most universal and widely respected sustainability and traceability program for the certification of wild-capture fisheries. The MSC’s U.S. office and Americas region headquarters is located in Seattle, Washington. In addition to the U.S. office, the MSC operates from eight other offices across the globe.
In view of the MSC’s role as an organization that promotes certification and labelling of sustainably produced seafood, the MSC’s comments (attached) are specifically on the section of the Green Guides on “Certification and Seals of Approval”.
