Denmark Eastern Baltic Cod Certification

The DFPO Denmark Eastern Baltic cod fishery was recently certified as a sustainable and well-managed fishery against the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) environmental standard.

The fishery operates year-round using demersal trawls and long lines to catch cod in the Baltic Sea east of Bornholm.

Baltic cod is an iconic food fish in both Sweden and Denmark and has been a commercially important species in the Baltic region since the 15th century. Consumers across Europe will now be able to buy Baltic cod bearing the distinctive blue MSC ecolabel.
