Chain of Custody

Companies that have Chain of Custody certification can make the claim “sourced from a certified RFM Alaska fishery” on their products, POS materials and/or website. It gives confidence to all buyers of the seafood that it can be traced back through the supply chain to the fishery that was certified as part of the Alaska Responsible Fisheries Management (RFM) Program.

If a company buys seafood from a certified fishery and wishes to make the certified claim or use the RFM seal, Chain of Custody certification is required. Every organization that takes ownership of the certified seafood, from the point of first handling after the seafood has been landed, until it is processed into the final consumer product, will need to be certified to the Chain of Custody Standard.
