The Challenge

Challenge area: Other

Consumers, retailers and restaurants have difficulties sourcing predictable, sustainable and high quality fish.

The supply of fish can fluctuate in certain seasons due to natural causes and cannot be predicted. This can lead to fishers trying to ‘trick’ the market by feeding the fish with waste or feeding the fish before harvest to increase fish body weight. Under certain conditions, freshwater fish farmers are forced to sell fish at low prices because the market is oversupplied, and at other times, prices can soar when fish supply is short. This situation is repeated every year and makes fish prices vo latile, unpredictable and can make it too difficult for suppliers to source sustainable fish.
