Tallink's two ferries operating on the Helsinki-Tallinn route have been awarded the Marine Stewardship Council's (MSC) Chain of Custody certificate.
The certificate guarantees that passengers on-board the ships are offered only sustainable and traceable MSC-certified shrimp and herring.
In 2017, five other ferries of the Tallink Grupp were recognised with the Chain of Custody certificate: Baltic Princess, Galaxy, Silja Symphony, Silja Serenade, and Silja Europa.
"The certificate is a valuable recognition for our strive towards reducing the impact our everyday activities may have on the environment around us. The MSC certificate is the most widely recognised international standard for sustainably caught seafood, so achieving this standard is an important milestone for us in our environmentally friendly activities and goals. We hope to extend the certificate to all our Group ships in the future," Katri Link, Communications Director, Tallink Grupp, said.
Minna Epps, MSC Baltic Sea Regional Programme Director, added, "We hope that Tallink's achievement will draw more attention to the important subject of using our marine resources sustainably, and will also inspire other companies and consumers to think more about where the seafood on our table comes from."
