22nd December 2011: Draft Report for HIMI toothfish

The Australian Heard Island & McDonald Islands Patagonian toothfish fishery is now approaching the final stages of Marine Stewardship Council review.

The MSC draft report was compiled by Scientific Certification Systems and is now available on the MSC website.  The public comment period ends January 16th 2012.

If successful, HIMI will be the third toothfish fishery to achieve the gold standard of the MSC, determining it a sustainable and well managed fishery, following the South Georgia and Ross Sea toothfish fisheries.
