The fisheries and aquaculture industry becomes more sustainable with certification programs like MSC and ASC and Control Union Certifications has globally a growing position in this sector. With the acquisition in 2016 from “ME Certification” (MEC), the largest UK based MSC Chain Of Custody certification, and MSC fisheries provider, our position grew.
In 2016, Control Union we also acquired a shareholding in Macalister Elliott and Partners Ltd (MEP) as well, a leading fisheries and aquaculture consultancy with over 40 years experience. We completed projects on every major continent and our staff works on a huge variety of projects, in both the fisheries and aquaculture sectors, with particular focus in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
We developed a niche for the completion of feasibility and due diligence projects within both the fishing and aquaculture industries. This commercial aspect though, has not stopped us completing biological and analytical projects including large tuna tagging programs in the IOTC region and observer programs across the globe.
We work with a large variety of stakeholders, from scientists and commercial organizations right through to the individual fisher folk, who fish simply to feed their family.
