"I think with the announcement by PSPA to start a new group and a new assessment, we thought it was just in the best interest of the industry to consolidate activities and put this matter behind us," pointed out ASPA Executive Director Rob Zuanich.
Meanwhile, Zuanich stated that ASPA is not asking PSPA to reimburse it for prior costs associated with the certificate, but that the new group will be responsible for new costs going forward. "No cost, just the new client group will now be responsible for maintaining the annual surveillance audits on the current certificate and hopefully in 2018 we'll continue the certificate," Zuanich said.

The ASPA is led by Robert Zuanich, managing director of Alaska salmon processor Silver Bay Seafoods, who serves as president of the ASPA.

The seven-page letter, sent from ASPA Executive Director and Silver Bay Seafoods executive Rob Zuanich, recounted the series of events leading up to the processors' April 7 bid to rejoin the client group, calling the request from the companies -- including Trident Seafoods, Peter Pan Seafoods, Icicle Seafoods, Ocean Beauty Seafoods, North Pacific Seafoods and Canfisco-owned Alaska General Seafoods/Leader Creek Fisheries -- a "great surprise."
Zuanich said the behavior of the companies -- which represent the majority of the salmon processed in the state -- does not encourage the ASPA companies to grant their request. "We see a group of large processors who attempted to destroy the MSC certification of Alaska salmon through almost any means possible," he wrote."We also see that when this group of large processors were members of past MSC salmon client groups they gave no consideration to the views of the smaller processors or Alaska's salmon fishermen.

The seven-page letter, signed by Rob Zuanich, executive director of ASPA and an executive in salmon processor Silver Bay Seafoods, listed out a multitude of reasons why the processors don't deserve to rejoin the client group.
"... [W]e do not believe it is presently consistent with ASPA's above stated purposes to admit your group into the client group. We note that the 2015 season is now upon us and we have our businesses to run. However, ASPA is willing to resume discussions in September with the express intention of establishing comprehensive stable sustainability certification or verification in 2016 for Alaska salmon." Zuanich was extremely critical of the Trident-led group, saying at one point in the letter: "We see a group of large processors who attempted to destroy the MSC certification of Alaska salmon through almost any means possible.

The group of Alaska seafood processors seeking to rejoin the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) salmon client group were rebuffed Tuesday in a dismissive letter from Rob Zuanich, the executive director of the Alaska Salmon Processors Association (ASPA).
