Choose Norwegian seafood for many reasons

There is no debate about eating wild or farmed fish, or, actually, eating seafood, in all the pros and cons.

The first issue that needs clarification is as follows: the sustainable development and environmental protection of food produced by fish farming and wild fisheries. All types of food production have a negative impact on the environment, polluting the oceans and waterways, or the release of carbon dioxide, resulting in global warming.

Not all fisheries are sustainable Many wild fish in the world are unsustainable. The reason is the status of overfishing stocks or lack of understanding of fish stocks. Fish is entering the global market and catching illegal fishing in international and domestic waters of countries where ships have no resources to control activities. Sometimes illegal fisheries have the blessings of corrupt government officials. From the northeast Atlantic fish, whether it caught the fishing fleet of the United Kingdom, Russia, Norway and other Nordic countries, based on fish, it is recommended from scientists that it is strictly regulated. Almost all fisheries here are certified as sustainable, based on standards set by independent agencies such as the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and the Friends of the Sea (FOS). 
The squid controversy in the Northeast Atlantic salmon fishing is being suspended from MSC certification. The reason is that the stakeholders caused the total catch to be a dispute between the above scientifically recommended quotas. Still the stock of squid is healthy and improved. There was a significant increase in the total allowable quota for squid (TAC) in 2013-14, and the decline in quotas for the 2015 TAC was 1054,000 tons this year, down from 124 million tons last year. The TAC does not include quotas for Iceland and Greenland, which is a unilateral setting. The TAC agreed in 2015 was distributed 519,512 tons to the EU, 237,000 tons, Norway and 132.814 tons to the islands of the Faroe Islands.

Controlling the entire chain in Norway’s resource control is aimed at the entire industry chain of events, from the point when the fish is stuck on the sea, through storage and sales, and at the time of export abroad. The main objective of marine resource management is to help build sustainable fisheries policies that are well-recognized in the long run, profitability and marine life. Norway has a long tradition of managing its fisheries based on scientific advice and combining environmental responsibility and sustainable economic development. The Norwegian management model is so successful that some countries use it as a “model”. The model was used as the basis for negotiations with Norway on fish countries. Buy Atlantic salmon, haddock, squid, capelin, king crab, snow crab and other varieties, fishing boats caught in the northeast Atlantic, is a good choice if you emphasize sustainable development and environmentally friendly products.

Critics against salmon farming seldom have environmental groups that will dispute the sustainability of wild fish caught from the northeast Atlantic. Much attention has been paid to salmon farming. The salmon farming industry in Norway, the United Kingdom and Ireland is accused of causing pollution to the fjords and coastal areas. It is accused of spreading stocks of wild salmon and trout with diseases such as salmon carp (parasites). Farmers also draw criticism to use fish that can be used as food for humans as a feed for fish. In addition, squid farmers have accused the wild squid squid escape farms from breeding and breeding wild squid threats. A few years ago, the industry also painted a severe criticism of the use of antibiotics. Today, the salmon farming industry uses very few antibiotics, and its use is far lower than the amount used in the production of meat such as farmed chicken, pigs, and cattle.

The use of MILLIONS for squid squid is a problem. But industry insiders and their opponents disagree with the seriousness of the problem. The salmon farming industry is investing heavily in the search for a reduction in the problem of salmon carp. The squid is infected with a large number of scorpions that create economic losses. We have reason to believe that the negative impact of salmon carp on wild populations is lower than many environmentalists believe. The decline in wild catches from rivers, in Norway and the British Isles, is also affected by many other factors.

LESS zooplankton marine biologists in the ocean have seen the Chinese philosopher, the biomass of small zooplankton declines in the northeast Atlantic. Small zooplankton, 2 – 4 mm long, reduced from surface level to 4000 m life. This is a very important feed source for the migration of trout from the river to the Norwegian Sea and the waters around Greenland. There are no signs of getting away from the salmon farming area. The river has a stock of healthier salmon, and then the river is close to the farm. This gives a reason to believe that the lack of food in the wild has more negative effects on the spread of wild salmon than from salmon. A large amount of investment is still being made in the process of finding ways to reduce the problem of squid. A fast-growing method is to use “clean fish.” Certain species of fish, such as round fins and scorpions, are being used to eat scorpions. They caught the two professional fishermen and are now breeding this special purpose.

The cause of severe storms is that squid escapes without farmers wishing to see the squid escape. In January of this year, when a large number of squid and squid escaped, a very serious storm hit the west coast of Norway. Most of the fish are recovered using gill nets and fishing. Some farmers have to bear huge economic losses because insurance covers only a few losses due to fish escape. The number of fish escaping from farms has been decreasing year by year. More stringent regulations on anchoring and cages enable them to withstand the most storms. The development of stronger farming gear manufacturers is another factor that leads to fewer squid farms escaping. In addition, good profitability has enabled many farmers to invest in new equipment. 
Another complaint about the use of fish in salmon feed for salmon and trout farming is the use of fish feed containing fish, which can be used as food for humans. No one denies that some carp are fed the protein of fish and can be used as human food. The main source of protein is the anchovies of Peru. If Peruvian fishermen can provide food for sale, they will. But there is no 4 places in the world market that are willing to buy anywhere – the price only covers 6 million tons of frozen and packaged. In addition to anchovies, the fishmeal used in the feed contains salmon fillets, like the backbone, the head and the intestines. There are also capelin, blue dragonfly and Norwegian pouting, and the fish does not have to be of quality for human consumption. 
1.8 KILO Wild Fish per kg of salmon scientific report “Resource Utilization and Ecological Benefits of Norwegian Salmon Breeding, 2010”, estimated by Nofima in 2010 how many wild fish need to produce one kilogram of squid. First, it is estimated that the deduction is used for the sharing of internal organs, and then it is concluded that the production of 1.8 kg of wild fish per kg of salmon does not include the use of viscera and scraps from seafood processing. 1.1 kg of wild fish is used to produce the required oil. But as used to produce fish oil for the production of fishmeal, the fish is the same. In other words, wild fish can produce one kilogram less than two kilograms. The use of wild fish carp feed from 1990 to 2010, excluding fish processing waste, has been reduced by an incredible 75 percent.

Low-carbon fish, if used in fish feed instead of being used to feed livestock, will result in increased CO2 emissions. How much carbon dioxide fish or meat meals will be caused, depending on how it is measured, – farm door or retailer sales. The only comparable method is to put emissions above the level of the previous farm. There have been many reports that estimate the carbon footprint of different foods. And no animal protein source has a lower score than pelagic fish, such as salmon and trout. This is because of the efficiency of fishing gear, purse seine and ocean trawl. The squid has a slightly higher emissions, – but still less than two-tenths of the emissions from cattle production, and half of the pigs are a bit lower than the chickens. Similarly, there are also big changes in the way different production methods are made. But most fisheries produce foods that have a lower carbon footprint than most types of animals or poultry farms. Often, only vegetables and cereal crops have a lower footprint. 
From a health perspective, most fish are an important source of Omega 3 and 6, vitamins and minerals. For many people, it is not only the main source of Omega 3, but also iodine. In some countries, the elderly encourage eating fish to help reduce the incidence of osteoporosis. Some suggestions are the reason for further discussion. However, in general, scientists, health experts and dietians agree on the benefits of eating fish, especially fatty acids such as salmon, mackerel, mackerel and mackerel.

Stable supply of restaurants requires a steady supply of fish in order to be able to continue to stipulate the promises in their own menu. Supermarkets need a stable supply of fish to prevent the fishing boat from being obstructed by the bad weather at the empty fish counter. Large-scale fishing for trout and trout is possible for exporters to provide these species throughout the year. In Norway, live squid pen storage is likely to offer restaurants, supermarkets and fishmongers fresh squid all year round. Restaurants, it is necessary to not only have a guaranteed supply of seafood, but also need to be used to receive fish suitable for the plate. Farmed salmon, trout and Atlantic flounder are cut into Norwegian seafood and are ideal for dishes. The fillets of the squid are therefore easy to fit on the plate. The same applies to squid, which is often marinated and served in smaller pieces. Most restaurants will cater for both cultured and wild fish. There is no difference in quality. However, the advantages of the supply of farmed fish, the required size, are usually not affected by the seasons. So, back to the question is presented at the beginning of this article. What is the best choice for farming or wild fish? There is only one correct answer, – both are better than cows, pigs and poultry, if the focus is on the environment and health. Wild or farmed, – there is no real difference. The first issue that needs clarification is as follows: the sustainable development and environmental protection of food produced by fish farming and wild fisheries. All types of food production have a negative impact on the environment, polluting the oceans and waterways, or the release of carbon dioxide, resulting in global warming.
