Project results are expected to
contribute to all of the following expected outcomes:
- Accessible and engaging media product to offer
information on seafood and aquaculture consumption choices; to ensure a higher
outreach, such product must be offered in all EU official languages, and take
into account fisheries and aquaculture specificities of all EU sea basins and
- More informed seafood and aquaculture products purchase
choices by European citizens;
- Encourage sustainability of consumption patterns,
including on reducing food waste and carbon footprint, and in consideration of
future viability of stocks;
- Support knowledge and consumption of local and seasonal
seafood and aquaculture products;
- Create an awareness campaign, including communication
products for e.g. Social Media, to promote the media product and support the
objectives as from the above mentioned expected outcomes.
Consumers can play a key role in realising the vision of “living well within
the limits of our planet”, and can drive sustainable and responsible patterns,
including the responsible consumption of seafood and aquaculture products.
The selected proposal should help citizens to make responsible choices in relation
to the seasonality of fishes and to fish population decline and, when relevant,
to the sustainability of fishing techniques. The campaign should be performed
by using the most effective and creative media, tools and types of initiatives
to ensure a broad outreach targeting different segments of consumers, including
Activities under this topic should also increase awareness and encourage
consumption and purchase of seasonal and local seafood and aquaculture
products, as well as awareness on health benefits and nutritional value of
aquatic food. These activities should also increase awareness on the benefits
to the planet from consuming sustainable seafood products (including under
organic farming) as well as in relation to the lower relative carbon footprint
of aquatic food.
Activities should have a broad geographical coverage in all Member States
and Associated Countries. To take in due account local/regional specificities,
activities should be co-designed and co-implemented with seafood retailers,
consumer associations, producers and SMEs to motivate them to support informed
choices of consumers.
Links with the “Taste the Ocean” initiative as well as with other
international, national or local initiatives are encouraged in order to
maximise the impact on more sustainable seafood and aquaculture products
