Mural puts WA’s sustainable fisheries in the picture

A mural by a Perth artist is taking shape at Fremantle’s Boat harbour to mark Sustainable Seafood Day.

Brenton See’s mural on Mews Road in Fremantle highlights Western Australia’s commitment to world-class fisheries management and the sharing of WA’s aquatic resources.

WA is a world-leader in sustainability certification with six fisheries having already achieved certification through the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) – highly regarded internationally as a benchmark for sustainable fisheries management.

The western rock lobster fishery was the very first in the world to be MSC-certified and has held its certification for more than 17 years.

And last year, WA achieved the first ever joint recreational and commercial certification when MSC certified the Peel Harvey blue swimmer crab fisheries.
