MRAG offers consultancy services that can address all the risks faced when harvesting & sourcing seafood. From fisheries, all the way throughout the supply-chain, we can help you meet the demands of your customer. MRAG believes in independent assessments as a key tool in the tool box being used to achieve sustainability and social responsibility in seafood.
Sustainable & Ethical
Knowledge of where fish comes from and assurance that it was sourced responsibly is now critical in making purchasing decisions. Responsible sourcing incorporates environmental sustainability and ethical labour practices both at sea and on land.
MRAG works with fishing and supply-chain companies to provide assurance that responsible sourcing criteria are met by assessing sustainability, verifying traceability, assessing sourcing criteria, analysing relevant risks and providing social audits. In cases where there is work to be done to achieve the required level, MRAG provides technical assistance throughout the journey. This information is presented through high-quality scientific analyses and reporting and provides third party verification of whether current systems are sufficient to guarantee compliance against the terms of the sourcing. MRAG are able to provide these services across the globe, click the topics in the side bar for more detail and past projects.
