Is BC’s pink salmon fishery sustainable?

Raincoast and three other BC ENGO’s have critiqued the proposal by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) to certify BC’s commercial pink salmon fishery as sustainable.  Raincoast supports certification as a way to make salmon fisheries sustainable, but we identified conditions that must occur before we support this certification.

After identifying conditions which MSC, DFO and the industry agreed to, Raincoast and three other ENGO’s gave conditional support to MSC certification of the commercial pink fishery in 2011.
