For fisheries in a fishery improvement project (FIP) with Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certification as an objective, this infographic illustrates the stages of the process.

The process, which can take several years, includes a pre-assessment stage followed by the development and implementation of a work plan focused on specific improvement issues.

ISSF offers fisheries and FIP participants a variety of resources to help them become more sustainable and capable of MSC certification.
