Marine Stewardship Council brings Portuguese microsite online

2012 03 26

The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), reiterating its commitment to strengthen global communication, today unveiled a microsite in the Portuguese language that is linked to its main London-based portal ( This is the thirteenth language site. The move shows a growing commitment not only to Portugal in the European region, but also to Brazil in the Americas region.

Brazil has emerged as the leading South American economic power with nearly 200 million people. It is the largest country in South America, both in geographical area and population, and is the world’s fifth largest country.

There is increasing interest on the part of Brazilian fisheries to enter the MSC program. The MSC employs two representatives in South America; Rodrigo Polanco who works in Spanish speaking Latin America, and Laurent Viguie in Brazil.

Portugal is recognized as one of the biggest seafood consumer countries in the world. Development of the MSC in Portugal is promoted by the MSC Iberian office based in Madrid. Laura Rodriguez, Country Manager and Carlos Montero, Responsible for fisheries are the MSC Team for Spain at Portugal. There is one Portuguese fishery in the program and 49 companies certified for Chain of Custody, mostly canning companies. More information available in Portuguese will facilitate the awareness on the program in the South of Europe and the engagement of more fisheries and seafood companies in Portugal.

The MSC main website portal is an information-rich resource that is used by journalists, scientists, companies, consumers, policy makers, and anyone seeking information about the organization.
