Sustainable Seafood Certification

Innovative fishery managers, aquaculture producers, supply chain companies, governments and advocacy groups are leading the global seafood market toward sustainable best practices. SCS is instrumental in this effort, certifying fisheries, aquaculture production, and chain-of-custody companies around the world to the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) standards. We helped develop the MSC standard, and now serve on the ASC Technical Advisory Group as a founding member.

  • MSC Fisheries

    Certify your wild-capture freshwater and marine fisheries to the gold standard for sustainable fisheries, the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), to gain access to international markets and buyers.

  • ASC Aquaculture Production

    Assure buyers, retailers and consumers that your aquaculture production conforms to the world's leading standard for responsibly farmed fish and seafood with Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) Certification.

  • Seafood Chain of Custody for MSC and ASC

    Chain-of-custody (CoC) certification assures food retailers, restaurants, seafood traders and consumers of the traceability of your certified fish and seafood. Products that meet the MSC Sustainable Fishery and ASC Responsible Aquaculture standards gain competitive advantage with on-product MSC or ASC labeling.

  • Fishery Improvement Projects

    Establish an incremental improvement plan for your fishery with the option of preparing for full MSC certification. FIPs is the international designation for strategic work plans that enable fisheries to become more sustainable, efficient and competitive.
