Sustainable capture fishery

Sustainable capture fishery - artisanal fishing with a future

Following the introduction of its very successful standards for organic agriculture in the mid-1990s, Naturland drafted its requirements for sustainable capture fishery.

The main focus of certification to the Naturland Sustainable Capture Fishery standards is on small-scale fisheries and in particular those which set an especially good example. Naturland devotes particular attention to these fisheries, and draws on the advice of external experts to provide tailor-made solutions. Certification to the Naturland Wildfish standards makes it obligatory to adhere to social standards at every link along the value-added chain. Products displaying the Naturland Wildfish logo must have been processed according to the Naturland standards for organic products. Besides the general requirements for sustainable fishing, individual management requirements specific to each project are applicable. These contain additional specifications addressing ecological, social and economic aspects.
