The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) is celebrating its 20,000th certified product.

Western tuna salad is now available in most Migros stores in Switzerland and has become the 20,000th product to come from an MSC certified sustainable fishery.

"We are delighted to be marking this milestone with a Swiss product from our long-term partner Migros," says Marnie Bammert, MSC Country Manager Germany, Switzerland and Austria. "At the same time we want to thank the Swiss companies and retailers that have included MSC labelled fish and seafood in their ranges for their commitment. In doing so they are supporting sustainable fisheries."

Swiss retailers currently sell nearly 600 fish products from MSC certified sources. This is almost 30% more than last year and only seven other countries in the world boast a broader range of products with the MSC label.

The tuna in Migros's Western tuna salad comes from a fishery in the Maldives that has been MSC certified for its skipjack catch since November 2012. The certified Maldivian fishermen have been using pole-and-line to catch skipjack for hundreds of years.

Migros is a retailer that offers its customers a wide choice for responsible fish consumption with more than 150 MSC certified products.
