Responsible Fishing Scheme (RFS)

The Responsible Fishing Scheme (RFS) has been replaced by the Responsible Fishing Vessel Standard (RFVS).

The Responsible Fishing Scheme (RFS) has moved to a new home. It has been replaced by the Responsible Fishing Vessel Standard (RFVS), a third-party certification scheme enabling fishing operations to provide assurance of decent working conditions and operational best practice from catch to shore.

The RFVS was developed in partnership by Seafish and Global Seafood Assurances (GSA) using a robust and collaborative standard development process. The RFVS is owned and operated by GSA globally. For more information on the RFVS, visit the RFVS page on the GSA website
