MSC confirms its scheme will not be extended to aquaculture

At its June 2008 meeting held in London, the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) Board of Trustees reconfirmed that it will not be expanding the scope of the MSC’s wild capture certification and labelling program to include aquaculture productions systems.

"The Board believes that the MSC should remain focused on its core mission; to use our eco-labeling and wild capture fishery certification program to help transform how the world’s seas and oceans are worked, and to influence the choices people make when buying seafood, so that responsible management is rewarded".
