June 26, 2012, Portland, Maine – Darrell Pardy, President of Bristol Seafood, announced today that the company has received certification from the Marine Stewardship Council for its frozen at sea haddock from Norway and its frozen at sea cod and pollock from Alaska.

“The certification is an important step in assuring our customers that the products they buy from Bristol are from sustainable fisheries and that we maintain chain of custody control over the product from when it is caught to when it is bought. The MSC logo will be included on packaging in the near future to further remind customers of our commitment to responsible sourcing of product.”
