14 November 2011: New study on evironmental impacts of MSC programme published.

The Marine Stewardship Council has released the results of an independent study that shows quantifiable, progressive improvement of the environmental performance of MSC certified fisheries over time.  A summary of the report can be found here.

This is good news for COLTO members and their associated toothfish (also known as Chilean sea bass) fisheries, of which two are currently MSC certified, with several others currently undergoing the certification process.
