Baffled by what this device is? It's called a bird baffler, and it helps deter seabirds from feeding around a fishing boat, so the birds don't get tangled in nets or cables. MSC certified fisheries must demonstrate they're working to minimise their impact on other species, including seabirds. ๐Ÿ’™ #loveocean #lovefood #love #birds #seabirds #nz #fishing #science #impact #sustainability #foreverwild #choosetheblue

BIG congrats to Heidi & Pavo Walker of @walkerseafoods, gold medalists at the @deliciousaus Harvey Norman Produce Awards 2019 for their swordfish. "MSC certification means that you trust they've done their utmost to produce sustainable, ethically caught fish of the highest quality," said judge Cameron Matthews. ๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ’™ ๐Ÿ“ท: @deliciousaus #loveocean #lovefood #love #sustainable #swordfish #foreverwild #choosetheblue

We're working to transform the global seafood market, including China, where the MSC, Geraldton Fisherman's Cooperative & Shangri-La have come together for a three month campaign putting certified sustainable Australian western rock lobster on hotel menus in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzen. The goal: to encourage hotel diners to make more sustainable choices, helping to keep our oceans healthy and to safeguard seafood supplies for future generations. ๐Ÿฆž๐Ÿ’™ #loveocean #lovefood #love #lobster #instaeats #finefood #sichuanfood #sichuanstyle #sustainability #foreverwild #choosetheblue

As well as positive environmental impacts, what other impacts do you think MSC certification has? ๐Ÿงโ€‹ Ashleigh and Katie, two of our MSC scientists, have been busy researching the social and economic impacts of MSC certification in Western Australia. โ€‹ Why WA? Katie tells us: โ€œWA is an interesting case where the government has chosen to fund the first steps for any fisheries wishing to enter the MSC program, and provides them with scientific expertise to make any improvements required to reach the MSC benchmarks.โ€โ€‹ This research project is a collaboration with @csirogram. #loveocean #lovefood #love #science #research #careergoals #anotherdayinwa #foreverwild #choosetheblue

Tiger prawn season in Australia's Northern Prawn Fishery starts today ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿงก. They'll be catching prawns from now through until November, to ensure there'll be plenty of wild, traceable, sustainable prawns for seafood lovers come Christmas. We're wishing the fishing fleet a safe, bountiful, sustainable season. ๐Ÿ“ท: @skullislandprawns #loveocean #lovefood #love #prawns #topend #fishing #foreverwild #choosetheblue

After more than 30 years in commercial fishing, Bill Holden joined the MSC in 2009, and has just celebrated 10 years working in fisheries outreach with us. You'll find him repping the MSC at regional fisheries management organisation meetings in the Pacific, and working directly with fisheries to guide them through the MSC Standard for sustainability. Best part of the job? Bill says: "Working with fishers, because I can relate to what they're doing, it's a great way to live. I also love the travel and meeting people." ๐Ÿ’™ ๐Ÿ“ท: @anthonyjrayburn #loveocean #lovefood #love #tuna #outreach #careergoals #foreverwild #choosetheblue

Where have you seen the MSC blue fish tick lately? ๐Ÿ’™ You can find it in more than 100 countries around the world, including Singapore, where @cheflucasglanville, Director of Culinary Operations for @grandhyattsing, is a leading light for sustainable fine dining. ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ”ฅ #loveocean #lovefood #love #singapore #hyatt #chefsofinstagram #sustainable #seafood #spencergulf #prawns #foreverwild #choosetheblue

Do you know which fish is this? Hint: it's caught by @walkerseafoods and you can find it with the MSC blue fish tick at @thefishshoppe at @southmelbournemarket. Bonus points if you know the scientific name and/or have a favourite dish you like to cook with it! ๐ŸŸ๐Ÿ’™ #loveocean #lovefood #love #fish #sustainable #seafood #foreverwild #choosetheblue

Sustainability means taking into account the impact fishing activity has on other species. In our latest impact report, we've looked at improvements made by MSC certified fisheries from 2016 to 2018, and identified 9 positive changes which have benefited marine reptiles, including turtles, terrapins, and sea snakes.

Know how to take a DNA sample from a sawfish? ๐Ÿค” โ€‹ "This funding will allow me to pursue one of my long term goals of helping build constructive relationships with fishers that assist them with integrating into mainstream scientific data collection," says Jessica Hudgins โ€“ 2019 Marine Stewardship Council Scholarship recipient, who will be conducting sawfish research in Queensland with @sharksandraysau. Jessicaโ€™s project is one of 5 student research projects receiving funding this year through the MSC scholarship program. Her project will support best practice in fisheries management.

"I became interested in ocean sustainability because I wanted to make a difference with my research. The ocean provides many different values for humans, such as food, jobs, but also cultural values and I think protecting the ocean and using marine resources in a sustainable way is imperative for our future," says Bianca Haas, 2019 Marine Stewardship Council Scholarship recipient. Bianca's study is one of the first to investigate the link between fisheries management organisations and @theglobalgoals.

BIG congrats to the 5 student researchers awarded Marine Stewardship Council scholarships in 2019, and especially to Bianca Haas from @universityoftasmania @imas_utas Centre for Marine Sociolecology, who will be doing research in PNG & Vanuatu, and to Jessica Hudgins, who will be doing research in the Gulf of Carpentaria with @sharksandraysau. The international scholarship program is part of the MSCโ€™s ongoing commitment to supporting science and research worldwide to tackle overfishing. Applications for the MSC's 2020 Scholarship Research Program will open early next year. ๐Ÿ’™ #loveocean #lovefood #love #science #fisheries #student #research #scholarships #seathefuture #choosetheblue
