Fish contains a number of healthy properties important to human health. That is why nutrition is mentioned i.e. in the Rio+20 declaration where the role of fish and food security is touched upon. It is important to include the nutritional aspect of fish consumption in all deliberations on how fisheries and aquaculture can contribute to global food security. This HLPE report is no exception. We therefore propose that a separate key issue covering this issue is added to the Terms of Reference, or otherwise included in the Terms of Reference. Attached you will find a Norwegian text proposal that we ask the HLPE Steering Committee to consider.
