Author(s): Vishnupriya M. S., Kasturi Chattopadhyay, Veerendra Singh, Pritam Sarkar and Akhilesh Kumar Singh
Abstract: 1Ecolabelling, or Eco-certification, has become the most important in fisheries. There are lots of certification systems intricate in the ecolabelling of different products; out of that, only 40 are responsible for fisheries-related products. Ecolabels are known as approval seals for products that have been harvested using sustainable methods with minimal negative impacts on the environment. According to Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), all fishing methods have some impacts on the environment and should be used responsibly and follow the regulations given by the code of conduct of responsible fisheries and other certification agencies. Many ecolabels are mainly focused on minimising the negative marine ecosystem of primary production in a marine ecosystem or commodity through a set of good practices that are captured in sustainable standards. The main aim of ecolabelling is to follow sustainable fishing methods, and it is an advantage in both ways by securing the marine environment from overfishing and bycatch and by consuming only good products. The application of ecolabelling programmes unites segments of markets, industries, environmental concerns, and communities while offering new tools to advance sustainability in fisheries and aquaculture. The ecolabelling certification are given to particular products to ensure the products was obtained or caught in the proper way by following the certain rules coming under the all the certification procedure. This review offers a quick overview of the advantages and disadvantages of various seafood product ecolabelling programmes and sustainable maintenance of ecosystem.
