Marine Stewardship Council

In 2000 Western Australia's West Coast Rock Lobster Fishery was the first fishery in the world to be certified as ecologically sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC). In 2017 it was the first fishery to be certified as sustainable for a fourth time. 

Information on certified fisheries is available from the MSC.

Several other Western Australian fisheries have also begun the journey towards MSC certification.
