Seafood guide for Portugal

Hello,

I was browsing through the seafood guides section on your website and noticed there is no seafood guide to Portugal - Portugal is one of the top world seafood consumers, with an estimate seafood consump-tion of 58 kg/cap/year (FAO, 1999) (http://www.ivm.vu.nl/en/images/ot7dba...) and The country has Europe's highest fish consumption per capita and is among the top four in the world for this indicator (The country has Europe's highest fish consumption per capita and is among the top four in the world for this indicator).

How can we help create a seafood guide? As the government conveys agreement on sustainable fisheries, encouraging consumers to choose local abundant fish stock, could we extend the Swedish initiative to Portugal and partner with retailers/supermarkets to choose only the most sustainable fish?
