As a consequence of these regulations, various labelling schemes from producers and distributors are now in place for ﬁsh products. These aim to promote resource sustainability, distinction of quality and product safety. Typically, such producer’s or distributor’s labels inform the consumer as to which aquaculture techniques have been used and which type of feed or raw materials have been used in the feed formulation.
