This research is expected to measure specific improvements in fisheries management and practice, reduced environmental impacts and more precautionary approaches that have been delivered as a result of engagement with the MSC program, both before a fishery enters formal full assessment, and/or resulting from the certification process, including the development, formation and delivery of action plans attached to certifications.
