Alaska senator Begich ‘wouldn’t be surprised’ if more companies left MSC

MSC-Logo“I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that more companies are looking for alternatives to MSC certification,” Begich told Undercurrent News…However, according to Kerry Coughlin, regional director for the Americas for the MSC, there are many buyers that are not happy about the loss of MSC certified Alaska salmon on the market, which will not be available at all until 2014 at the earliest, if then. “They’re frustrated that their suppliers are pulling out of being part of the client group and therefore can’t provide them with MSC certified fish,” Coughlin said.
