SWHFA meet with Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) about non-renewal of accreditation
Three members of the SWHFA met with Toby Middleton, Chris Ninnis & Claire Pescod of the MSC recently at Mevagissey whilst they were in the County for a few days.
The meeting had been requested by the MSC with an agenda to discuss the wish of the membership not to renew our MSC accreditation in 2012. Toby Middleton (UK Commercial Manager) spent some time explaining how the renewal may be made cheaper through, asking Moody Marine for a breakdown of their quote (£11? or £13k? plus VAT) & also asking other Certificating Bodies for quotes for the same. After about 20 minutes we reminded the delegation of the history of the Mackerel fishery in the SW, from the 1970’s through to today.
We have opened a fishmonger in East London and looking for suppliers that can send fish direct to us via courier. We would love to promote the idea of tagged line caught fish and be transparent on who has caught it.
