GOING BLEU Sustainable fishing

What is Sustainable Fishing?

Sustainable fishing is based on the principle of sustainable development. It must meet the needs of the current generation without compromising the needs generations to come.

For a catch to be considered sustainable, different environmental, economic, and social measures must be in place.
