Fish consumption in Italy grew from 11.8 kg/pc in 1961 to 25.1 kg/pc in 2003. The main group of products purchased by Italian families is fresh seafood, with 50 percent of purchases, followed by frozen seafood (23 percent) and canned seafood (20 percent). Due to the increasing consumption and declining domestic supply, Italy is a net importer of seafood. 
Mechanisms to ensure the sustainability of fish stocks have been introduced by governments at the national, regional and international levels. In addition to these public measures, market based private sector mechanisms have also been introduced. Ecolabels are one such mechanism, designed to influence the purchasing decisions of consumers and the procurement polices of retailers selling fish and seafood products, and to reward producers using responsible fishing practices.
The report outlines the results of a survey of almost seventy retail outlets in two key European seafood markets, France and Italy. The survey focused on the presence of seafood products from developing countries in these outlets.
