Five of Tallink Silja’s cruise ships, departing from Finland, have become the world’s first cruise ships to obtain MSC Chain of Custody certification for the seafood they serve. The Tallink Group is one of the largest maritime carriers of passengers and cargo in the Baltic Sea region and this MSC certification demonstrates their commitment to sustainability and their support of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), particularly SDG 14, which calls to conserve and sustainably use the oceans.

The ships, Silja Serenade, Silja Symphony, Baltic Princess, Galaxy and Silja Europa will now offer their customers sustainable and traceable MSC certified shrimp and herring. About 160 tonnes of shrimp and 22 tonnes of herring are consumed on these five ships annually. This certification ensures that customers onboard ships can enjoy seafood in Tallink Silja’s restaurants that has come from a sustainable fishery and can be traced from ocean to plate.
