Methodology

The VISwijzer is a tool developed to check if the fish that you buy is sustainable. The VISwijzer is managed and maintained by Good Fish.

Assessments are based on the most recent scientific data regarding fish stocks and databases of the World Wildlife Fund, Fishbase and the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations).

We have developed the VISwijzer for you as consumer! It makes it even easier to make sustainable choices and to make it even easier, a distinction has been made between two categories:

Farmed fish

The assessments of farmed fish are based on the following three elements:

– Use of recourses
– Impact on the environment
– Management

Wild caught fish

The assessments of wild caught fish are based on the following three elements:

– Fish stocks and fishing pressure
– Ecosystem effects
– Fishery management
