The European Parliament adopted a resolution expressing concern at
the reported level of mis-labelling of fishery products in the EU
(6% of white fish, according to a recent Commission study). It calls
on Member States to strengthen national controls, including on non-processed
fish for restaurants and the catering sector, to tackle fraud and
supports a strong traceability system, from landing to consumption.
The Parliament calls on the Commission to submit a feasibility report
on options for an eco-label scheme for fishery and aquaculture products
and address the need for minimum standards for ecolabelling. The review
should also address the confusion caused by the current labelling
requirements based on Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) areas.
