The European Commission published the results of a public consultation on fisheries and aquaculture ecolabelling. The consultation, which closed in July 2015, attracted 443 responses from 24 EU Member States and 12 non-EU countries, as well as 8 position papers. Respondents included NGOs, professional organisations involved in fisheries and aquaculture as well as certification schemes, and members of the public. 70% or more of respondents thought that the EU should set minimum standards for ecolabels, there should be international standards in place, and that national authorities should check claims and police certification bodies. Respondents were more divided about creating a special EU ecolabel for fishery and aquaculture products.
