IRF Certification for Icelandic Cod
5 December 2010, Icelandic cod received certification according to the FAO-ISO based Iceland Responsible Fisheries Management Certification Programme.
This is an important, and historic milestone for Iceland’s seafood industry and confirmation that the fishery for the nation’s most valuable fish stock is well managed. The Fisheries Association of Iceland (FAI) is facilitating the Iceland RFM programme and all players of Iceland’s seafood industry are participating in this proactive endeavour designed to further strengthening the competitiveness and image of this vital industry.
Peter Marshall CEO of Global Trust said; “This independent FAO-ISO certification for the Icelandic cod fishery against the FAO requirements clearly demonstrates that this fishery is managed in a responsible manner according to internationally recognised reference points. I would like to congratulate Iceland’s fishery managers and stakeholders alike.”
