The world of certification and eco-labeling remains a confounding one. Scores of certifications overlap, compete, and sometimes contradict one another. Eco-labels often do the same. Figuring out how they work, what they cover, who operates them, and how robust their standards are can be a time-consuming, and sometimes nigh-on-impossible task.

SeafoodSource’s updated 2020 Seafood Certifications Guide answers these questions, and more. Much like its now-retired 2019 predecessor, this guide is designed to be a comprehensive encyclopedia of seafood ratings systems, certifications, and eco-labels that touch the world of seafood. SeafoodSource has identified and categorized all the certifications and eco-labels that are most relevant to the seafood industry, and has then gone further by defining how they apply to the industry, and even illustrating which companies are using them and how.

While comprehensive, the 2020 Seafood Certifications Guide is also meant to be functional. With an exacting critical eye, SeafoodSource has culled each entry down to the bare essentials, providing readers only the information they need and nothing extraneous. The goal was to create a flipbook that can be used as a quick-reference guide for those who have to know one certification from another, speedily and easily.

The 2020 Seafood Certifications Guide also includes a lengthy, research-based report intended to give a real-world take on how certifications are perceived in the retail, marketing, and production realms. The report takes a deeper dive into how certifications and eco-labels can be used effectively and creatively, and what other issues should be taken into account when considering the adoption of a label or certification.

Dive into the latest in seafood certification with the 2020 edition of the guide, which includes new profiles and information specs, to keep you connected and in the know.
