The celebrating event of “Inseparable- Fish Sustainability Campaign” hosted in Athens on March 17, at “Technopolis” Cultural Centre seeking to engage citizens to “Let the juveniles become parents”.
The event took place in the framework of the new pan-European campaign ‘Inseparable’, which aims at raising awareness on sustainable practices of fishing, consuming and trading as well as on how to build even wider public support for implementing the reformed Common Fisheries Policy. A wide range of stakeholders made it to the event in Athens. Fishermen, scientists, chefs, fishmongers, teachers, students, consumer and civil society organisations committed to more sustainable ways of fish consumption.
Prof. Konstantinos Stergiou, Director of the Institute of Marine Biological Resources and Inland Waters of the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research, highlighted the devastating impact of eating undersized fish, and explained, why we must change our habits so as to achieve sustainable consumption. Many people may not have fully realised the consequences or even the fact that they were eating babies. But after the talk, it was clear to everyone, letting the babyfish grow to mature size and letting them reproduce was the best investment ever into eating good fish also in the future.
