ANFACO-CECOPESCA is participating in a European project to ensure the future of fishery product production and consumption in a reliable, sustainable and safe way.

The business organization, along with 34 other international partners, including the leading research centres in Europe in the field of food, are starting the Seafood Tomorrow project, whose main objective is to strengthen the future of the European seafood production and processing as well as that of aquaculture.

The project, which involves 35 partners from the United Kingdom, Ireland, Holland, Slovenia, Denmark, Belgium, France, Italy, Norway, Sweden, Spain and Portugal, funded by the Horizon 2020 program, has a budget of EUR 7 million and a term of execution of 36 months.

The project focuses on providing innovative solutions that contribute to food security, risk reduction, employment impact and a stronger perception of the consumer as to the quality and safety of fishery products, aquaculture and derivatives.

It will address the development of sustainable and eco-innovative market solutions that take into account the response of consumers, from different approaches: technical, social, economic and environmental ones. This will strengthen the market availability of fishery and aquaculture products and their healthy, innocuous derivatives and those that are "tailored" to the nutritional needs of different population sectors.

Strategies will be established to increase and diversify fishery and aquaculture product production in a sustainable manner as well as to improve the use of existing marine and aquaculture resources.

Likewise, innovative technologies for processing marine products and derivatives will be developed, at an affordable cost from the economic and environmental point of view.

All this will increase the value of European production in a global and competitive market, comply with European regulations on food safety and environmental sustainability and guarantee the long-term supply of food in a context of climate change.

ANFACO-CECOPESCA, in particular, plays a crucial role in this project. It will work on the development of sustainable healthy products, which are nutritionally enriched, ready to consume and "tailor-made" for children, the elderly and pregnant women, as well as in the development of strategies to eliminate marine biotoxins from molluscs, among others.
