Burry Inlet cockles re-certified

Pesca is happy to announce the re-certification of the Burry Inlet cockle fishery.

The fishery was part of a pilot for a revised assessment process, aiming to simplify the assessment process – reducing complexity and cost whilst improving effectiveness of stakeholder engagement and maintaining credibility.

Burry inlet cockles have been certified according to the MSC standard since 2001, and MEC’s assessment concludes that the Burry Inlet Cockle Fishery should be re-certified according to the Principles and Criteria for Sustainable Fisheries as set by the Marine Stewardship Council.
