In 2015, the Cooperative Fisheries Organisation (CVO) of the Netherlands, the MSC GbR of Germany and the Danish Fishermen - Producers Organisation (DFPO) decided to come together as one to enter the MSC program. Fish from these organsiations are landed in many ports along the entire Danish, German and Dutch coast (from Breskens to Esbjerg).

If the assessment is successful, the operations will together produce almost 30 million kg of certified sustainable shrimp annually.
