Sustainable Fish Week: Facebook contest

Not all fish is caught in a sustainable way. If you want to know which kind of fish you can eat without having to worry about your conscience, have a look at the ‘VISWIJZER’. Fish are divided into a blue, green, orange and red column. ‘Blue’ indicates that the fish acquired a sustainability label, and ‘green’ means that the fish is carefully cultured or caught with minimal damage to the natural environment and is not overfished. These two categories are preferred!


Download the VISWIJZER or the app for iPhone or Android.


You can also make a promise yourself! Visit our Facebook page and post your promise under the contest picture: ‘To promote sustainable fishing, I promise to…’. By doing so, you can win a trip for 2 people on the Research vessel Simon Stevin or one of the books ‘shrimps’.
