Verifying that Alaska's Salmon Fishery is Sustainably and Responsibly Managed
RFM provides independent, third-party certification of the management of the major Alaska commercial fisheries. Certification provides additional assurance and verification to buyers, markets, and stakeholders that seafood from Alaska is responsibly managed and sustainable. Since 2015, AFDF has served the industry as the Client for the RFM certification of the Alaska salmon fishery. As the Client, AFDF successfully completed a first full five-year reassessment in 2017 and has maintained RFM certification for all regions, all gear types, and all salmon species.
On November 4th, 2022, Global Trust Certification announced the 2nd surveillance audit of the Responsible Fisheries Management (RFM) certification for Alaska Salmon. Please see the announcement document for details:RFM Salmon Fishery Announcement 11/4/22
