The ASC and MSC open public consultation for the joint Seaweed Standard
March 2, 2017
The MSC and ASC have just launched a second 60-day public consultation on the joint Seaweed standard.
Interested parties are invited to view the proposed Seaweed Standard and share their expertise and feedback through an online consultation open until 30 April 2016.
The standard will allow certification from both wild harvest and farmed seaweed, regardless of the scale or location of the operation. The assessment of seaweed farms and fisheries will be guided by five core principles: sustainable populations; minimising environmental impacts; effective management; social responsibility; and community relations and interactions.
