ECsafeSEAFOOD assessed food safety issues related to priority contaminants present in seafood as a result of environmental contamination (including those originating from harmful algal blooms and those associated with marine litter) and evaluate their impact on public health.
The ECsafeSEAFOOD project has produced a number of important outputs, including the ECsafeSEAFOOD database for priority chemical compounds, a unique database in which data on contaminants of emerging concern in seafood species are collated and FishChoice, an online tool which allows consumers to assess the health benefits and risks of seafood.
To access the online tool FishChoice, see: http://www.fishchoice.eu/.
