Twenty six percent of the total salmon catch in Kamchatka was eco-labeled in 2018

It also means 20% of the total salmon catch in the Russian Far East were certified against the environmental standards of Marine Stewardship Council (MSC).
In 2018, six fishing companies of Kamchatka joined the circle of MSC certified fisheries. As a result, the percentage of officially sustainable catches of Kamchatka doubled comparing to the fishing season of 2016.
"We expect that this year the percentage of MSC certified catch in Kamchatka will increase. In 2018, the Tymlat Fishery joined the certification process. It is quite possible that the company will receive the certificate of sustainability in the next couple of months," said Sergey Korostelev the Sustainable Marine Fishing Program coordinator with WWF-Russia.
Until the moment the MSC certification standards are the most objective ones. They work as a well-accepted proof of fisheries' sustainability. Buyers, sellers, and fishermen in many countries around the world recognize the MSC label as a guarantee of environmentally sound origin of the certified seafood.
