Pelagia expands in Denmark
Pelagia is established in Skagen, Denmark, producing marinated herring.
All issues related to environmental certification of Norwegian
fisheries are coordinated through a special taskforce under the
Norwegian Seafood Council (NSC).
In some markets environmental certification is a demand, and the
Norwegian seafood export business has acted accordingly. As a
main rule Norwegian fisheries are certified according to the MSC
standard, and DNV (the Norwegian Veritas) has been chosen as
Different bodies have so far been certifying clients and Norges Sildesalgslag has been in charge of the pelagic fisheries.
The NSC taskforce has recently recommended the Norwegian Fishermen's Association to be the future client for all Norwegian certificates and related certification processes. All parts involved have approved this recommendation, and the previous role of Norges Sildesalgslag being client, is thus transferred.
Norges Sildesalgslag is very content by letting the Fishermen's Association formally take over, both nationally and internationally, says Mr. Knut Torgnes, sales director by Norges Sildesalgslag.
Renewing herring certificates
A process is already initiated to renew the MSC certificates related to Atlantic Scandic herring, herring in the Skagerrak and herring in the North Sea as these certificates expire after 5 years; i.e. the 29th of April 2014.
Mr. Jan Birger Jørgensen, Assisting Secretary-general in the Fishermen's Association, says in a press release that the Norwegian fishing industry considers it normal to let the herring fisheries be re-evaluated by MSC. Hopefully this will maintain the good impression of the fisheries being responsibly operated in a sustainable manner. - We are looking forward to a fruitful cooperation with MSC, Jørgensen says.
