Morey's gets RFM certification

American seafood processer Morey's Seafood International has received chain-of-custody sustainability certification under the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute (ASMI)'s responsible fisheries management (RFM) program.

The certification, based on standards from the U.N.'s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), applies to salmon purchased from Alaska by the Minnesota company.

"The FAO-Based Responsibility Fisheries Management Certification serves as a model within the seafood industry," said Jim Walstrom, President of Morey's Seafood International. "Morey's is proud to add RFM to our stable of certifications for both of our Minnesota based facilities."

Morey's has also received certifications from the British Retail Consortium, Marine Stewardship Council, and the Aquaculture Stewardship Council. The company is also a governing member of the Global Aquaculture Alliance and maintains a close a partnership with the National Fisheries Institute, The Shrimp Council, and the Seafood Nutrition Partnership.
