Europe’s fish stocks are in danger: 3 out of 4 stocks are overfished, specifically 82% of Mediterranean stocks and 63% of Atlantic ones. As a direct consequence of this overfishing, there are fewer and fewer fish in the sea and many European fishing fleets are not profitable.
– In Belgium, the chef at fish restaurant “La Marâe” chooses her ingredients. She always offers her customers fish from sustainable stocks.
– In Spain, the SME Lonxanet Directo specialising in fresh fish, sources from a community of fishermen in Galicia with a long history of small-scale fishing.
– In France, supermarket chain Carrefour provides its customers certified sustainable frozen fish from the best suppliers as part of its growing sustainable frozen fish line.
