This site is designed to provide access for the public to documents used during the MSC assessment process by Scientific Certification Systems (SCS),Inc for the Iturup Island Pink and Chum Salmon Fisheries commissioned by J.S.C. Gidrostroy. J.S.C. Gidrostroy is a private company established in 1991. Since its inception, it has always been actively committed to the long- term sustainability of the Iturup Island salmon fishery, as a significant part of the vibrancy of the local economy as well as sound business practice. It was this long term outlook, as well as Gidrostroy’s growing presence on the world market, that prompted General Director Alexander Verkhovksy to undertake the commitment to complete the MSC certification process. We hope that you will join us in our commitment to a sustainable future.
