scallopsThe MSC announced today that the eastern Canada offshore scallop fishery will be certified, allowing it to carry the blue and white sticker denoting alleged sustainability.  Dredged sea scallops, found on Greenpeace's Redlist, are FAR from sustainable, and once again the MSC is sending a confusing message that a fishery that uses a fishing method akin to bulldozing the ocean floor is worthy of a stamp of approval.  Like another fishery up for certification- the longline swordfish fishery- the scallop fishery is known to incidentally catch sea turtles, as well as a variety of other non-target species.  If you're a consumer craving scallops, avoid these ones and go for a greener choice such as those that have been farmed using suspension culture.
