ASMI Seeks Comment on Fisheries Standards

The Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute in Juneau is seeking public comment through Aug. 4 on its Alaska Responsible Fisheries Management Certification Fisheries standard.

It’s the first full review and reissue of the standard since the RFM program standard was launched in 2011.

ASMI said all comments received would be presented for review to the Alaska Fisheries Standard Committee, formerly known as the Conformance Criteria Committee, before releasing the final version of the Fisheries Standard. To ensure the review process is inclusive, ASMI is calling on all parties with an interest in responsibly managed fisheries to review and offer their expertise on the matter.

Interested stakeholders will find everything they need in the “Open Public Consultation” page of ASMI’s website,

Comments must be submitting using the Alaska RFM V 2.0 public comment form.
