The list of projects is drawn from an unpublished report prepared for the EEA by members of the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU). Some more examples were added as a result of a questionnaire sent to all partners of the European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity (ETC/BD). An EIONET consultation provided more information that was further enlarged by ETC/BD partner European Centre for Nature Conservation (ECNC).
Where you can, choose organically farmed fish such as sea bass, salmon and trout.
Non-organic fish uses large quantities of chemicals and antibiotics which can affect other animals in the food chain. It is also worth bearing in mind that to produce a 3 kg farmed salmon, 15 kg of fish are caught in the wild to provide its meal and oil.
