Population and economic growth will result in a doubling of demand for food globally by 2050. One of the main challenges in meeting this demand will be ensuring that food production and consumption is socially, economically and environmentally sustainable and safe. Seafood is one of the most important food commodities consumed in Europe as it is an important source of high-quality protein, and is naturally rich in valuable nutrients for a healthy diet. It is therefore vital to develop new environmental-friendly and transparent seafood production and processing methods to support European seafood security, safety and quality in-line with market demands.
Addressing these challenges, SEAFOODTOMORROW has developed commercially viable and eco-innovative sustainable solutions to improve the socio-economic and environmental sustainability of seafood production and processing sectors, while preserving seafood quality and safety and promoting seafood consumption in a healthy diet.
Focusing on these solutions and supporting the dissemination of project results, SEAFOODTOMORROW has produced a special issue in the journal, Food and Chemical Toxicology (impact factor: 3.775). The issue, edited by SEAFOODTOMORROW Project Coordinator António Marques (IPMA, Portugal), Ana Garcia Cabado (ANFACO), Sara Cunha (ICETA) and Monica Campás (IRTA) focuses on the outstanding innovative research by the project partners on toxic effects in the human environment related to food, food, and industrial safety, consumer product safety and nutrition,
