One day it's cleared for MSC certification and the next it's downgraded by MBA?
Pollock is a popular target for environmental groups who use exaggerated claims about the apparently always looming threat of collapse to raise eyebrows and, more importantly, money. It would appear MBA has fallen victim to the hyperbole pedaled by groups like Greenpeace.
Here's a look at some of MBA's comments about Alaska pollock:
So, MBA is downgrading a species that is MSC certified and has a "progressive and precautionary" management system in place that is "highly effective" because of "conflicting evidence" and potential impacts which it is admittedly "unclear" about.
Sound like concrete reasons to you?
Alaska pollock has been, and continues to be, one of the best managed fish stocks in the world. Downgrading the stock so MBA can bring its metrics in line with bottom feeding types who insist on playing politics with pollock undercuts its own rankings.
