Keeping ASC busy
The Mowi certification team have seen the rewards for their hard work over the last month with 3 sites either achieving their Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) certification for the first time or successfully retaining it.
In Port Hardy, the team at Heath Bay received news in early December that their site had achieved certification. The site is currently fallow with the team dispersed across other sites during this period it meant that any celebration had to be postponed. Marsh Bay was ASC certified for the second time, after a long fallow resulted in expiry of the first.
Humphrey Rock was another site that received its certification in December, this means that 90% of harvest sites in the Broughton region are now certified.
This brings our total of certified sites to 22 and we’re getting closer to our goal of all sites being certified by 2020. Congratulations and thanks to all involved for their hard work.
