GSSI Recognizes Alaska RFM

GSSI recognizes the Alaska Responsible Fisheries Management Certification Program

On July 12, 2016, the Global Sustainable Seafood Initiative (GSSI) Steering Board announced its recognition of the Alaska Responsible Fisheries Management (RFM) Certification Program. GSSI’s recognition shows that the Alaska RFM Program (Fisheries Standard V 1.3, effective January 1, 2016) meets the FAO Guidelines for the Ecolabelling of Fish and Fishery Products from Marine Capture Fisheries. Through the benchmark process, the Alaska RFM Program has demonstrated alignment with all 143 applicable Essential Components of GSSI’s Global Benchmark Tool (version 1.0, effective 8 October 2015). The Tool consists of performance areas related to scheme governance, operational management and applied wild-capture fisheries audit standards. View the Press Release for GSSI Recognition.
