Deep sea crab fishery lands eco-tick

Minister with Glen Bosman

WA’s commercial deep sea crab fishery has achieved the global gold standard in sustainability certification.

After undergoing a rigorous 18-month assessment the Australian west coast deep sea crab fishery has been certified to Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) standard – the highest international benchmark for ecologically sustainable fishing.

The fishery operates from Carnarvon to Bremer Bay in waters up to 800 metres deep and the majority of its $2.3 million catch is sent to Asian markets.

The independent third-party certification carried out by the MSC will further enhance the fishery’s reputation as a quality, sustainable seafood provider.
