Sea bream and sea bass are by volume the third (36.4%) and fourth (28.15%) most farmed fish species in the EU, and their collective value (€1.04 million) surpasses that of salmon (€0.78 million), trout (€0.55 million) or mussel farming (€0.49 million). The farming of sea bass and sea bream contributes significantly to wealth and job creation in Mediterranean rural and coastal areas. However, in recent years, there has been growing concern regarding the lack of growth and improvement in the MMFF sector, and the European aquaculture industry as a whole.
PerformFISH works to ensure sustainable growth of the Mediterranean aquaculture industry, based on consumer perceptions and real market requirements. It aims to support fish farms that operate not only in ideal economic and environmental conditions but also in a socially and culturally responsible manner.
