The Bahamas Spiny Lobster (Panulirus argus) fishery has become the first Caribbean fishery to win the certification of the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) programme.

As of Tuesday, August 7, the fishery was awarded the certification by an accredited third-party assessment body control union pesca.

The Bahamas is now among eight percent of MSC certified fisheries from developing countries following a 19-month assessment process. Lobster fishermen and other members of the client group worked closely with government and researchers in The Bahamas to raise the fishery’s standard to meet MSC requirements, making packs of lobster tails now eligible to carry the blue MSC logo.
