MSC and ASC sign MOU

The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to further collaboration for partners handling both ASC and MSC certified products.

Collaboration will focus particularly on those who straddle the wild-enhanced-aquaculture boundary, such as seaweed producers.

Rupert Howes, CEO of the MSC, said: “The MSC and ASC share a common heritage and vision that global seafood supplies should be sustainable, responsibly managed and supported by secure supply chains. Cooperation between our organisations will bring greater operational efficiencies and adds value to our partners.”

Through the MoU, MSC will also provide support to ASC in delivering regional outreach to shared commercial and supply chain partners and through joint market-based activities.

The two organisations also share a joint vision that standard systems should conform to international norms and codes of good conduct, including FAO Guidelines for ecolabelling and ISEAL Codes.
