About the 2-18% of Spanish fish products are mislabeled (ES)

Ante la competencia de terceros países, se han desarrollado en Europa métodos genéticos para la identificación y autentificación de especies marinas comerciales. Los primeros resultados del proyecto LABELFISH, que pretende estandarizar a nivel europeo dichas prácticas, revelan que el porcentaje de etiquetado erróneo de productos elaborados a partir de atún, bacalao y anchoa, entre otros, se sitúa entre el 2% y el 18% en Reino Unido, Irlanda y España.

LABELFISH se centra en el análisis de diversos productos de pesca entre los que destacan aquellos elaborados a partir de atún, bacalao y anchoa. Asimismo, tiene un coste total de 1,9 millones de euros, siendo 1,2 millones de euros financiados por el Programa Europeo de Cooperación Transnacional del Espacio Atlántico, y participan en él seis países: España, Francia, Irlanda, Portugal, Reino Unido y Alemania.
