Slovenia consumed its annual fish supply in just one month and a half

Slovenia has eaten in just 45 days its annual fish supply, according to a report issued by World Wildlife Fund Adria. "February 15 was the day when we eat up the local fish in Slovenia", commented the NGO representatives.
The country has to rely on imports for the rest of the year to cover the average consumption of 10.8 kilos consumed by the residents. Fish consumption in Slovenia is lower than the average in the EU (22.7 kilos) but production is also low, accounting for only 13% of the fish consumed in the country.
The NGO called for a sustainable approach in the industry, warning that fish stocks are severely depleted, in particular in the Mediterranean. Almost half of the fish consumed in Europe is imported and Portugal is the champion in fish consumption (55.3 kilos per capita) followed by Spain, Lithuania, France and Sweden.
