MSC Certification 

MRAG Asia Pacific assists in coordinating MSC assessments in the Asia Pacific region on behalf of MRAG Americas, who is approved to conduct both third party sustainable Fishery Certifications and Chain of Custody Certifications in accordance with MSC standards ( 

Sustainable fisheries assessments are carried out in accordance with MSC's Principles and Criteria for Sustainable Fishing (download an application).  These Principles and Criteria are the guidelines against which client fisheries are rated. A client fishery must meet or exceed the minimum standards for 1) stock assessment and stock status, 2) ecosystem impacts, and 3) fishery management system to receive certification.

Chain of Custody Certifications are conducted under the MSC standard (download an application) and ensure that products bearing the MSC logo are sourced from a sustainably certified fishery.

MRAG has considerable previous experience in sustainable fishery assessment and a global network of experts, associated offices and chain of custody auditors to support certifications.  For further information please contact:
