We also work very closely with certain UK and international representative associations.
UN Sustainable Development Goal #2:
End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition
There are 7.3 billion people in the world. By 2030, the UN expects this to reach 8.5 billion and, by 2100, there will be 11 billion people on the planet. This population needs feeding. In terms of nutritional quality, pelagic fish are amongst the most cost effective foods available.
They’re low in cholesterol, brimming with healthy long-chain-omega-3 fatty acids and nutrients like riboflavin, iron and calcium. Increasing fish consumption among poorer populations can add a nutritionally valuable component to their everyday diet. North Atlantic Fishing Company already exports approximately 90 per cent of its catch to poorer nations outside the EU.
Globally, pelagic fish represent around 18 per cent of worldwide fish consumption. However, wehn we look at low-income, food-deficit countries, this rises to 29 per cent.
