Recreational fishing groups formally object to menhaden’s MSC nod

Further proof that the Marine Stewardship Council has lost the last of their credibilty.

Three different recreational fishing groups filed a formal objection against the Marine Stewardship Council certifying Omega Protein and the Atlantic menhaden fishery. 

The Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership, American Sportfishing Association, and the Coastal Conservation Association all signed onto the objection filed with the MSC. SAI Global, one of the leading certification bodies for the MSC, recently recommended that the fishery be certified after an extensive review of the fishery.
