Why Norwegian cod and haddock are sustainable
– with or without MSC certification.
Recently, a large proportion of Norway’s cod and haddock fishery lost its MSC certification. However, this is not because the stocks are in threatened conditions, nor because the cod and haddock are fished in an unsustainable manner.
Our cod comes from the largest cod stock in the world – the North East Arctic (NEA) cod stock. It is considered healthy and viable by the International Council for Exploration of the Sea (ICES) as well as the Norwegian Institute of Marine Research (IMR). The same goes for the haddock. In short, Norwegian cod and haddock are still very much sustainable seafood options.
