Here's the letter the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute has sent laying out its conditions for becoming the Marine Stewardship Council's new "client" for salmon certification.
One of the main points is that ASMI wants the partnership with the MSC to be "cost neutral to ASMI."
It proposes having the MSC extract the $250,000 in costs directly from industry players who benefit from the MSC logo. The MSC would then pass the funds along to ASMI, which would use part of the money to hire a new employee.
The letter raises plenty of other key points and is well worth reading.
