Fish and meat

Dutch livestock is mainly bred for export. Livestock is responsible for 11% of greenhouse gas emissions in the Netherlands (nitrous oxide, methane and carbon dioxide).

Dutch people eat fish from all around the world. 75% is caught in the wild and 25% is farmed. Farmed fish are usually fed on wild fish. The age of the fish caught in the Dutch territorial waters of the North Sea is increasingly younger (and therefore increasingly smaller).
