MarinTrust Approved By-products

The MarinTrust approved by-product assessment reports are listed below. Any queries should be emailed to standards@marin-trust.com.

Important Notice:

If a MarinTrust certified factory uses an MSC certified fishery product in the production of fishmeal and/or fish oil that has its certificate withdrawn or suspended, this fishery must be assessed under the MarinTrust Standard to gain approval as a compliant raw material. This applies to both whole fish and by-products.

Product from any fishery which loses its MSC certification and does not subsequently meet the MarinTrust Standard, must be separated at the production facility from any MarinTrust approved raw material.

Any MarinTrust certified factories which use MSC certified species that have been withdrawn, must submit a scope extension application form   and email to standards@marin-trust.com to gain approval.

The MSC certified species listed on this site have been provided by MarinTrust Standard certificate holders. All MSC certified species are recognised as compliant to the MarinTrust fisheries assessment elements of the Standard. The MarinTrust Secretariat updates this list regularly, but take no responsibility for the accuracy of the information. You should check https://www.msc.org for the latest information on any MSC species.
