Requirements for GSSI Fisheries EWG members

Experts for the Fisheries EWG must have demonstrated thorough knowledge of the principles and criteria for responsible and sustainable fisheries or resource management. A formal education in fisheries biology or fisheries or resource management is preferred, but not required, although at least one member should have a formal education in fisheries biology or management. Fisheries EWG members should also include those that have experience in the development or application of the principles and criteria of (eco-) certification programs.
