Pacific cod sustainability certification underway

MSCLogonew1AFDF remains the client for the MSC sustainability certification of the P-cod fishery. The 4th annual survellience audit and the 5-year re-certification is scheduled for completion by January, 2015. AFDF contracted with MRAG of Americas as the auditor, and collected the voluntary industry fees for the cost of the certification. The site visit occurred in late May in conjunction with the site visit for the Alaska pollock and flatfish fisheries as a cost-saving measure to industry. Continued updates regarding the certification process will be posted on the AFDF website throughout the year.
