Identifying and mitigating potential risks for Marine Stewardship Council assessment and certification

Fisheries Research

This paper was an output from FRDC project 2013 / 038 which sought to generate more efficient and consistent outcomes for Australian fisheries undergoing MSC certification. We reviewed audits of all global fisheries that became MSC certified between 2000 and 2014 to examine how different species and types of fisheries were scored against the MSC sustainability standard.
