Certified organic, dolphin-safe, line caught, or MSC certified? The labels on fish products being sold in Europe can be confusing, so how do you decide which is the most sustainable choice?
In this episode of Ocean Calls we're fishing for the real story behind those labels on packaging and marketing slogans. Euronews science reporter Jeremy Wilks asks Manuel Barange, the director of the United Nations’s Fisheries and Aquaculture Division at the Food and Agriculture Organization, and Vanya Vulperhorst, the European campaign director for Illegal Fishing and Transparency at the conservation organisation Oceana, if it's OK to eat fish if you love the ocean?
Oscar-winning documentary director and self-confessed 'Antarctica addict' Luc Jacquet also tells us about his favourite marine species.
