Different terms are often used for the concept of organic fish. The best-known terms are Bio, Eko or Organic. Organic fish is always farmed in such a way that natural growth is encouraged.
Organic fish must meet the following requirements:
– There is a maximum number of fish per square metre
– The fish are given sufficient feed
– The water in which the fish swim is not enriched with oxygen
– No medicines or growth hormones are used
– Reproduction takes place in a natural way
Biological standards apply the strictest sustainability requirements for fish feed and set requirements for animal welfare. Organic fish can be recognized by the Dutch EKO Quality mark (left) or by the European EKO Quality mark (right).
