Blue swimmer crab/mullet

The Peel-Harvey Estuary blue swimmer crab fishery has become the world’s first combined recreational and commercial fishery to achieve sustainability certification by the Marine Stewardship  Council (MSC).

At the same time the Peel-Harvey Estuary sea mullet fishery has also successfully undergone MSC certification – the first finfish fishery to do so in Western Australia.

Information is available from the MSC on the assessment of the fishery.

The following documents were prepared to assist in the certification assessment process.
