The website „Fischbestände online“ (in German) provides up-to-date and scientifically correct information on all aspects of the sustainable use of marine fish stocks relevant for the German market.
The development of the freely accessible website started at the ANUGA in 2009, under the auspices of the Federal Minister for Nutrition, Agriculture and Consumer Protection, Ms Ilse Aigner. The present minister, Christian Schmidt, is happy that the information provided by the Thünen Institute, one of the ministry’s federal research agencies, has become an indispensable source for the purchasers of processors and retailers. In the third project period, funding is mainly provided for a scientist at the Thünen Institute of Baltic Sea Fisheries in Rostock. She collates, verifies and updates the Information.
