After the launch of the Farm to Fork Strategy in 2020 and just ahead of the start of DG MARE’s own #TastetheOcean campaign, the latest episode of Ocean looks at the complex journey of seafood from the moment it is caught to the moment it lands on your plate.
How much do we know about the origin of the fish we eat — and how can we be certain of its safety and quality? This episode, filmed in Vigo, Spain, follows the fish and other seafood from a fishing boat through landing and sorting procedures to the auction hall, processing and canning factory, a retail shop and a restaurant — explaining every step of the process from “sea to plate”, including how labelling empowers the consumer to make informed, sustainable retail choices.
