Aker BioMarine Antarctic Australasia Pty has achieved Marine Stewardship Council certification for its sustainable practices and krill fishery infrastructure.
Aker BioMarine's krill-derived products sold in Australia are now eligible to bear the MSC eco-label, providing consumers with a guarantee of sustainability, effective fisheries management and traceability from sea to shelf. To maintain MSC Certification, Aker BioMarine undergoes annual auditing during which it must maintain certain benchmarks and conditions.
"Sustainability is central to our business operations," said WebjÃ¸rn Eikrem, executive vice president, Upstream Operations, Aker BioMarine. "Our ultimate goal is to continuously meet the highest environmental standards in sustainable management while producing great krill products for our customers in Australia and worldwide."
