Other Media | SeafoodSource: RFC, ousted from Russia’s MSC client group, intends to get certified on its own

Friday, October 09, 2020

Radical proposals made by the Russian Fishery Company (RFC) on the development of the Russian seafood sector led to the loss of a Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certification by the company.

In September, RFC was expelled from the Pollock Catchers Association (PCA) – the MSC’s client group in Russia. Now the company plans to apply for the certification independently.

RFC, owned by Gleb Frank –a young entrepreneur who entered the seafood industry just a few years ago with big investment plans – shook up the segment in summer 2020 by rolling out a few proposals to reform the management of fisheries in Russia.
