In Hungary, the 6 kg per capita annual fish consumption is still far below the European average of around 20 kilograms, so events promoting fish consumption are important – Lévai Ferenc spokesperson of the Hungarian Aquaculture and Fisheries Interprofessional organization told M1 news channel.

As an example, he mentioned the Öreg-Tavi Great Fisherman’s Festival in Tata, where from 19 to 21 October everything is about the Hungarian fish and the preparation of fish dishes. He added that in improving the situation of Hungarian fishing, more emphasis should be put on the development of fish processing, in order to make it easier to access processed foods, including fillets or slices.
