Royal Greenland recently announced that Sustainable Fisheries Greenland has made arrangements with Det Norske Veritas (DNV) to begin the assessment of the fishery for off shore Greenland Halibut on Western Greenland with the goal to obtain an MSC certification.
The fishery will be evaluated in 7 different steps, before it is settled whether the fishery can be certified sustainable. The assessment is expected to last approximately 12 months.
Prior to the assessment, the offshore fishery for Greenland halibut on Western Greenland has been through a pre-assessment that determined a basis for a full assessment.
More information about the assessment is available on the MSC website:
