Consumer information under the EU Common Organisation of the Markets Regulation

As part of the recent reform of the EU Common Fisheries Policy, consumer information requirements were reviewed and extended. Commercial designation, scientific name, production method and catch area continue to have be made available and now include date of minimum durability, if previously frozen, method of capture and more detail for some catch areas. This applies mainly to fresh and not processed products. This document explains what information is required and provides current guidance on the application to fish and shellfish.
