Comments for the MSC assessment “Joint demersal fisheries in the North Sea and adjacent waters”

In recent weeks, we have been collaborating with a NGO in the preparation of the comments for the public stakeholder comments’ stage of the MSC certification assessment of the “Joint demersal fisheries in the North Sea and adjacent waters” . This assessment covers several fisheries previously assessed separately by the MSC, including: CVO North Sea plaice and sole, Danish and Swedish nephrops, Denmark Skagerrak and the Norwegian Deep cold-water prawn, DFPO Denmark North Sea & Skagerrak cod & saithe, DFPO Denmark North Sea & Skagerrak haddock, DFPO Denmark North Sea plaice, DFPO Denmark North Sea sole, DFPO Denmark North Sea, Skagerrak and Kattegat hake and plaice, Germany North Sea saithe trawl, Sweden Skagerrak, Kattegat and the Norwegian Deep cold-water prawn. The high number of stocks included in this report makes it a very complicated assessment which has required the collaborative work of several consultants and NGO staff working in the different countries covered by the assessment.
