Norway's inshore cod fishery could regain its Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) status as early as next year, according to a newly released timeline for reassessment.

The process to recertify Norway's inshore cod fishery officially launched Sept.15, with the conformity assessment body (CAB) DNV estimating a timeline -- which ends with certification -- to wrap up the process by June 2023.

Comment draft reports were released for both the inshore cod and haddock fisheries, which will be done as scope extensions for the existing certificates for the respective offshore fisheries.
