Certified salmon: Park Service director endorses Alaska fish without the MSC label. He does NOT go far enough.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski put Jon Jarvis, director of the National Park Service on the hot seat, and he tried to wiggle his way off the hook by seeking closed door discussion over the Alaska Salmon issue. That’s all well and good for Alaska, while the point is missed that by law all US fishery’s are regulated to be sustainably fished. What about other sustainable by law fish that does not carry the British ENGO label? This NPS issue is just getting started.

From newsminer – So Mr. Jarvis obviously felt a little uncomfortable at a hearing in Washington, D.C., on Thursday when Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, dug into a Park Service recommendation that could curtail Alaska salmon sales by park concessioners nationwide. [email protected]
