Tell the MSC to stop certifying these unsustainable fisheries
Please sign this petition to demand that the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) immediately stop certifying reduction fisheries. Reduction fisheries target forage fish which serve as the foundation of the marine food web. These species are too important to the health of the ecosystem to be scooped up in such massive quantities and ground up and fed to livestock and farmed raised fish like Salmon. The Marine Stewardship Council should only consider fisheries that catch fish primarily for human consumption. The MSC label is intended for retail consumers to make sound choices, and few of the products produced by the reduction fishery are available in markets.
For these reasons, we call on the MSC to immediately stop the certification of any reduction fisheries, including Omega Protein, the Canadian-owned fishing conglomerate under review now.
Thank you for signing the petition!
