A Danish Pelagic Producers Organization herring fishery in the North Sea is seeking reassessment for its Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) sustainability certification.

MSC certifications are good for five years — the Danish fishery first received its certification in 2009.

“This is a very important fishery for Denmark and we are delighted to be taking part in its reassessment for the flagship MSC standard as a sustainable and well managed fishery,” said Max Goulden with MacAlister Elliott and Partners, the independent conformity assessment body that will conduct the fishery’s reassessment.

The fishery operates pelagic trawls and purse seines, and had a share of the 2013 Total Allowable Catch of approximately 83,000 metric tons.
