Results from Seafood Consumer study by MSC

Every two years, the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) conducts a large worldwide seafood consumer survey (over 25,000 consumers in 23 markets) through an independent research consultancy.

The webinar and the pdf on the European findings are available here (scroll down a bit).

You can re-watch the webinar and delve into the seafood consumer study to understand what (some) consumers think and expect.

FutureEUAqua featured in EAS podcast episode

In this EAS podcast from 3 April, Tamás Bardócz (AquaBioTech Group, Malta), Åsa Maria O. Espmark (NOFIMA, Norway), and Antti Kause (Luke, Finland) discuss the latest developments in the interacting fields of digital information technology, genomics and circular economy applied in farm management and monitoring, fish nutrition, feeding and selective breeding. These topics are developed together with the industry and researchers in the three Horizon 2020 EU-projects, AquaIMPACT, FutureEUAqua and iFishIENCi, funded under the topic ‘Sustainable European Aquaculture 4.0: Nutrition and Breeding Innovations’.
