MSC-certified mackerel added to the selection: The mackerel offered by Kalaneuvos is now MSC-certified. The MSC label is an internationally recognised certification applied to fish that has been caught in an ecologically sustainable fashion.

The MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) is the world’s leading certification organisation for sustainable fishing. The organisation uses a wide range of standards for the traceability of fish and seafood, and the standards have been proven to have a positive impact on the fish population. The MSC certification for sustainable fishing evaluates the state of the fish stock, the environmental impact of fishing activities, and the management of fishing operations. Fishing must not change the structure or diversity of the marine ecosystem or deplete the fish population.

The blue, oval MSC label signals to the consumer that the fish in question has been caught sustainably. The label can be found on product packaging, on a shop’s fish and seafood counter, or on a restaurant’s menu.

Kalaneuvos uses mackerel caught in the north-east Atlantic, in FAO area 27. The north-east Atlantic mackerel population is healthy and at a sustainable level.
