Romania receives PGI status for the smoked Danube mackerel

This represents Romania's fifth national product certified under European quality systems.

Romania has four other products certified under European quality systems: the Topoloveni plum jam, the Sibiu salami, the smoked bighead carp fillet from the Barsa County and the Ibanesti white cheese.

The Danube mackerel is a wild fish that migrates from the Black Sea to the Danube. The species can not be grown in aquaculture and is captured only during migration on the Danube. It has 250-400 grams and 25-30 centimeters in size and is recognized as fish with the highest fat content in the world.
