On 18 September, the Commission launched a new season of the #TasteTheOcean campaign, bringing sustainable fish and seafood to the tables of 9 EU countries for the following 4 weeks.

As in previous editions, the Directorate-General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (DG MARE) has been working with European celebrity chefs to create exclusive recipes where the main ingredient is a local, seasonal fish product from wild fisheries or aquaculture.

This season, we are venturing on a journey of discovery across Austria, Germany, Hungary, Luxembourg, Latvia, Malta, Poland, Slovakia, and Slovenia

With tasty recipes and practical tips, the campaign aims to encourage consumers to buy and enjoy sustainable fish and seafood, making better and more informed food choices.

Find out more about the fish species featured in the recipes, meet small-scale fishers and aquaculture producers who put sustainability at the core of their work, and cook along with the celebrity chefs.

Follow #TasteTheOcean on DG MARE’s social media channels and discover all the recipes and tips on the website of the campaign.
