Atlantic Dogfish Fishery Certified as Sustainable by Marine Stewardship Council
NEW BEDFORD, Mass (Saving Seafood) August 30 2012 - The U.S. Atlantic Spiny Dogfish fishery today became the first east coast shark fishery to be certified sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC).
"U.S. fisheries are among the most well managed fisheries in the world," said Sam Rauch, Acting Assistant Administrator for Fisheries at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). "Sustainable fisheries rely on a dynamic process of science informing management and working with the fishing industry to ensure responsible and accountable practices. This fishery demonstrates the strength and success of the U.S process to provide sustainable seafood to domestic and global markets."
October 21, 2014 -- Look, It’s time our federal lawmakers tackled this issue — and NOAA’s budgeted revenues — head on.
That means ensuring that a far greater share of this money — dedicated to the fishing industry, not the federal government’s grotesque management of it — is headed this way.
