ISSF Participating Companies Achieve Full Compliance with 30 Science-Based ISSF Conservation Measures

ISSF released its sixth annual Update to ISSF Conservation Measures & Commitments Compliance Report in November 2021, and it shows a conformance rate of 100 percent by ISSF participating companies with all 30 ISSF conservation measures in effect. Following the remediation period, all companies were fully compliant with all 30 measures audited. 

As part of its commitment to foster transparency and accountability in the fishing industry, ISSF engages third-party auditor MRAG Americas to assess ISSF participating seafood companies’ compliance with ISSF conservation measures according to a rigorous audit protocol.

“Since we began our compliance and audit process for ISSF participating companies in 2015, we’ve seen the conformance rate improve nearly every year,” said ISSF President Susan Jackson. “We are especially proud to see consistently strong compliance from these seafood companies even as we have continued to expand our conservation measures — from 21 initially to 30 today — and raise the bar for them to reach.”
