More and more seafood operations on both the fisheries and farmed side are seeking sustainability and the credentials that go with it, intent on establishing their products as socially and environmentally responsible. This journey toward sustainability often leads to some familiar places, including to the doors of renowned certification bodies such as the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC). When it comes to sustainability certification, MSC and ASC have seen most everything – join Nicolas Guichoux, the global commercial director at MSC, Esther Luiten, the senior commercial manager for ASC, and SeafoodSource in a discussion of the modern trials and trends facing the seafood industry in the realms of sustainability and certification.

Join SeafoodSource in an important on-demand discussion about the conditions that allow human rights abuses to persist in the seafood industry and the success stories from groups and companies that are strengthening the social components of their procurement policies.
