BioFish Forum discussed revision process for EU organic aquaculture production rules- dynamic organic seafood market threatened?

The interim rulings for organic aquaculture products laid down in the European organic regulation are phasing out which is putting organic aquafarmers under pressure, but also is threatening related import and retail business. A legal action by EU commission is needed to avert this threat. BioFish Forum organized by Organic Services and IFOAM EU-Group discussed need for actions to avoid negative impact on the young organic seafood industry which has exceeded the 1 billion EUR global turnover mark in 2012.
