An environmental winner

Fish is not only good for our bodies, but also for the climate, as is shown by an environmental balance sheet that has been drawn up by SINTEF for the Norwegian National Association of Fishing and Aquaculture Industries. The research project shows that one kilo of salmon delivered to a consumer in France is responsible for emissions corresponding to 3 kg of CO2 equivalent. The corresponding figure for beef is 15.8 kg, while for pork it is 6.4 kg and for poultry, 4.6 kg.
