Sustainabi​lity certificat​ion – Questionna​ire on a NOAA alternativ​e

The Marine Fisheries Advisory Committee (MAFAC) advises the Secretary of Commerce on matters relating to Fisheries and Aquaculture. We would greatly appreciate the NFI’s assistance in distributing this brief survey about seafood certification to your members. A working group of MAFAC is considering the appropriate level  of involvement of the National Marine Fisheries Service (NOAA Fisheries) in the sustainable seafood certification process for domestic fishery products. The group is collecting stakeholders’ views on the benefits and limitations of third party certifications, and the potential for a federal government role. This information will be used to help inform MAFAC’s future recommendations. Here is the link for the survey.
