3Ps Cod Fishery Achieves Marine Stewardship Council Certification

A southern Newfoundland cod fishery has gained Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certification, demonstrating that it is possible for struggling fish stocks to recover and reach sustainability benchmarks that benefit both nature and communities.

The MSC certification of the southern Newfoundland cod fishery – known by its Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Organization (NAFO) Subdivision of 3Ps – comes after the successful completion of a WWF led Fishery Improvement Project (FIP) in partnership with Icewater Seafoods Inc.

The FIP was a collaborative project that included partners from industry, governments and NGOs, and was designed to improve the health of the fishery so it could enter into the independent MSC certification process.
