A new strategic vision for sustainable aquaculture production and consumption in the European Union

Category:News

Did you know that more than half of the world’s fish and other aquatic food for human consumption comes from aquaculture? Aquaculture has been the fastest growing food production activity in the world in decades. This growth is expected to continue.

Fish products are particularly healthy, providing a supply of vitamins and minerals necessary for the proper functioning of the body.

In the brochure found at the link below you can read about the benefits of aquaculture, its development within the Union and you can learn about the course of fish products from the producer to the consumer’s plates and about the rules the aquaculture producers in the EU have to obey before they deliver their products to the consumer.

https://op.europa.eu/en/publication-detail/-/publication/e8bd0eb1-093a-11ec-b5d3-01aa75ed71a1

The brochure is available in English, Romanian and Greek among several other languages.
