ASMI Seeks Comment on Fisheries Standards

The Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute in Juneau is seeking
public comment through Aug. 4 on its Alaska Responsible Fisheries Management
Certification Fisheries standard.
It’s the first full review and reissue of the standard since
the RFM program standard was launched in 2011.
ASMI said all comments received would be presented for
review to the Alaska Fisheries Standard Committee, formerly known as the
Conformance Criteria Committee, before releasing the final version of the
Fisheries Standard. To ensure the review process is inclusive, ASMI is calling
on all parties with an interest in responsibly managed fisheries to review and
offer their expertise on the matter.
Interested stakeholders will find everything they need in
the “Open Public Consultation” page of ASMI’s website,
Comments must be submitting using the Alaska RFM V 2.0
public comment form.
