MSC Certified Catch [BIP]

MSC Certified Catch [BIP]

Indicator description

MSC Certified Catch measures the green weight catch of fisheries certified by the Marine Stewardship Council, and compares this to total wild capture production as reported by the FAO. Certified catch as a percentage of total catch is an indication of the share of global seafood that is caught in an ecologically sustainable manner, and also illustrates commitment from fishers, seafood companies, and governments to achieving and demonstrating sustainability.

CMS Target 5

Governments, key sectors and stakeholders at all levels have taken steps to achieve or have implemented plans for sustainable production and consumption, keeping the impacts of use of natural resources, including habitats, on migratory species well within safe ecological limits to promote the favourable conservation status of migratory species and maintain the quality, integrity, resilience, and ecological connectivity of their habitats and migration routes

CMS Target 6

Fisheries and hunting have no significant direct or indirect adverse impacts on migratory species, their habitats or their migration routes, and impacts of fisheries and hunting are within safe ecological limits.

CMS Target 13

Priorities for effective conservation and management of migratory species, their habitats and migration systems have been included in the development and implementation of national biodiversity strategies and action plans, with reference where relevant to CMS agreements and action plans and their implementation bodies.

Mapping with Sustainable Development Goals

SDG Target 14.4

By 2020, effectively regulate harvesting and end overfishing, illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing and destructive fishing practices and implement science-based management plans, in order to restore fish stocks in the shortest time feasible, at least to levels that can produce maximum sustainable yield as determined by their biological characteristics

SDG Target 14.7

By 2030, increase the economic benefits to small island developing States and least developed countries from the sustainable use of marine resources, including through sustainable management of fisheries, aquaculture and tourism
