Farm Gate: MSC Certified – How does it work?

The Marine Stewardship Council is an international NGO working to protect oceans and safeguard seafood supplies for the future. The Netflix film Seaspiracy concluded that sustainable seafood doesn’t exist – but the MSC disagrees. Currently, 16% of the world’s wild caught fish is certified and carries its blue MSC ecolabel, and the organisation aims to have 30% engaged in its programme by 2030.

ffinlo Costain speaks to George Clark, the MSC’s programme director for the UK and Ireland. They discuss what sustainable seafood is, how it’s certified, how managed fisheries can restore fish stocks, and why the MSC refused to take part in Seaspiracy.
