MAC Licensed Retailer Program Package

MAC Licensed Retailer Program Package

Quality Marine customers have been purchasing MAC Certified Organisms for years but all but a few have been unable to sell them as certified product, due to the customers reluctance or inability to achieve formal certification. In June, 2009, the Marine Aquarium Council launched a new program designed to allow retailers who agree to the terms of the licensing agreement to sell MAC Certified Organisms and advertise product as such.

The MAC Licensed Retailer Program is designed to help reduce leakage of certified product through the chain of custody, allow a greater number of hobbyists to purchase sustainably harvested and handled organisms, and act as a preliminary step to formal retailer certification. We encourage all of our customers to participate in this new program to not only help open up the sale of certified product to those who desire them, but also to increase awareness of those who support trade sustainability.
