Winners 'Sustainable Fish Week' contest

After another successful edition of the Sustainable Fish week, the winners of our contest can be announced. Margaux Dekeyser will join marine biologists on the Research Vessel Simon Stevin, on a cruise on the North Sea. Eve Scheppermans, Laura Segers, Anne-Sofie Vandenbroucke, Sue Ellen Taelman and Patricia Senaeve won a copy of the book ‘Garnalen - verhalen en recepten van vroeger en nu’.


They all made a promise to promote sustainable fishing. I promise to…

- ‘go fishing with a spear in the garden of my neighbour’ (Margaux)

- ‘eat sustainable fish maximum once a week and take part in 40 days without fish - as I don’t eat meat’ (Eve)

- ‘try to convince Filip Kowlier to write a song about sustainable fishing’ (Laura)

- ‘indicate which fish should be thrown back, next time I go fishing with my boyfriend’ (Anne-Sofie)

- ‘eat more algae, the primary sustainable source of omega3/6-acids’ (Sue)

- ‘inform kids in a fun way during sessions that I lead as a nature guide; they will pass the message on to their parents’ (Patricia)
