The Marine Stewardship Council is an international non-profit organisation, whose vision is for the world’s oceans to be teeming with life, and seafood supplies safeguarded for this and future generations.

Critically, other fisheries are incentivised to improve their performance to meet the growing demand for certified sustainable and traceable seafood choice. Over 400 fisheries around the world, representing 14% of the annual global marine catch, are now engaged in the MSC programme and over 1200 documented improvements to the way our oceans are being fished have been recorded. MSC certified and labelled seafood products are now available in over 100 countries.
