Marine Harvest and Covedis line-caught cod pass eco-label audit

The jiggers and liners of the Ny-Fiskur cod fleet, which supply Marine Harvest and the Swiss processor/wholesaler Covedis (provider of Manor and Sushi Zen) has passed a thorough Friend of the Sea (FOS) audit.

The management plan for the Icelandic cod stock was considered by ICES as consistent with the precautionary approach and with maximum sustainable yield. This was only part of the official scientific evidence which led to certification, said FOS.

The fishing methods audited have no impact on the seabed. The vessels respect spawning and nursery closure areas and discards are strictly prohibited.

If the undersized fished cod is more or equal to 25% of the catch, the fishing area is immediately closed for fishing. None of the by-caught species are listed as vulnerable in the IUCN Redlist of endangered species.

The certified cod will now feature the Friend of the Sea logo.
