Did you know that
The Italian saying "as fit as a fish" (in English "as fit as a fiddle") originally referred to the fact that in nature only the strongest, and therefore the healthiest, survive. Today, as far as aquaculture products, this means wholesome fish guaranteed by a number of tests carried out during the entire production cycle, from the fry to the final product;
aquaculture fish is super tested and therefore gives more guarantees than the catch, as the nearly 1,000 aquaculture plants undergo regular controls by the ASL operators;
the use of antibiotics in aquaculture is counterproductive, as they make fish lack appetite and prevent it from fattening;
aquaculture fish is fed only with fish flour and other vegetable flours;
a part from being an excellent aquaculture fish, the trout is also used as a thermometer to value the level of water pollution;.
italian aquaculture fish, thanks to the closeness of the plants, arrive fresh on our tables just a few hours after being caught;
you can see if fish is fresh from the sheen of its scales, from the rose-coloured gills, the transparent, slightly bulging eye and the firm and elastic flesh.
DID YOU KNOW THAT A.P.I. adopted a "Code of aquaculture fish-breeding practice" as a support to producers in order to ensure adequate quality standards to the Italian aquaculture fish, and to provide the sector operators with addresses of trustworthy and eco-compatible productions. Another step forward to give prestige to the national product and more guarantee to the consumer.
