Bourgas, on the Black Sea, December 4 (BTA) - The Bulgarians consume the least quantity of fish and fish products in Europe, the Chairman of the National Association of Fish Producers in Bulgaria, Tacho Pashov, told BTA on the eve of December 6 when the Orthodox Church celebrates the feast of St Nicholas the Miracle Maker. Fish is traditionally eaten on the St Nicholas feast day.

The Association members report decreasing levels of consumption of fish in the past two years. They argue that a large-scale promotion campaign is needed to increase demand for fish as a healthy food.
