Last month we noted the Marine Stewardship Council was close to certifying Alaska's flatfish harvest as sustainable and well-managed.
Well, today comes this announcement that Alaska flatfish has indeed achieved the MSC eco-label.
Flatfish trawlers target a variety of soles, flounder and plaice.
The MSC announcement asserts the flatfish harvesters have
"significantly reduced bycatch" and cut the bottom contact of their trawl gear by 90 percent.
