Better fish welfare means better quality

The sustainable harvesting of wild fish is one of the most important challenges facing the global population in its efforts to obtain adequate fish volumes. There is a huge potential for improvement in the field of fish harvesting efficiency. The DANTEQ project has resulted in the development of new skills and methods for optimizing fish handling onboard vessels in relation to raw materials quality and energy efficiency.

More gentle methods of catching and gutting fish on trawlers will benefit the fish, the environment and the bottom line.
