The implementation of our crayfish FIP may lead to a future Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certification. Through its worldwide recognized certification, the MSC promotes sustainable fishing and its label guarantees a complete traceability of the product from its origin to the sales point.
For the development of our project, we count with the collaboration and support of the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP), the renowned NGO that works with the world’s largest producers and buyers in order to improve fishery management around the globe.
