Research and survey results
Participants of the research and surveys 4th and 8th graders and their families. Methods: interviewing, researching and reporting, making posters and albums. Sources: magazines and encyclopedias, the Internet.
Topics The survey and analysis of the survey Fish as food Growing and processing of fish in Croatia
Survey analysis We usually eat fish once a week. There are mostly marine fish and that is hake. It is usually prepared fried or baked. In most cases we are buying frozen fish and we choose by the price, not by the origin of the fish. We mostly consume fish fillets, breadcrumbed fish sticks and canned fish.
Survey analysis We don’t often eat fish in restaurants, but we would if someone else is paying for it (its expensive for most of us). We are aware that we do not eat enough fish but obviously the price and availability of the fish is the most important.
Fish as food We have researched the nutritional value of fish, how the Croats usually prepare their fish, what spices do they use and how to recognize fresh fish. Fish contains little fat and carbohydrates and lots of proteins, vitamins and minerals and omega - 3 fatty acids.
Fish as food We have learned that fresh fish has a mild odor, bright and clear eyes, gills are light red from inside. Fresh fish should be kept on ice, while with frozen fish the packaging must be intact.
Fish as food Croats do not eat a lot of fish annually - about 21 kg, which is less than Italians (24 kg), French (33 kg), Spaniards (44 kg), Portuguese (57 kg) or unattainable Icelanders with 90 kg per year.
Fish as food Although it is not often we eat fish, we have our favorite ways to prepare it : baked in the oven, on the grill or on a fork, preparing fish soup or fish stew, we fill or bread it etc. As side dish we add various vegetables or pasta.
Fish as food Usual spices that we use when preparing fish are: parsley, bay leaf, basil, coriander, cumin, rosemary, marjoram, ginger, thyme, garlic and tarragon, and of course, salt and pepper.
Growing and processing of fish in Croatia The most common freshwater fish in Croatia are: carp, catfish, grass carp, pike and trout. About 50 licensed growers are engaged in breeding freshwater fish in Croatia. Most of them breed trout and carp. Fish farms produce about 9,500 tons of fish annually.
Growing and processing of fish in Croatia The most represented marine fish are: bream, John Dory, sea bass, hake, grouper, as well as sardines, sprat and tuna. Several major refiners and distributors are engaged in processing marine fish: Ledo, Mardešić, Adria, Mirna and Sardina. These are factories, some of which have a tradition of over 100 years. They mostly produce frozen fish, canned fish, spreads, etc.
Conclusion: We have a habit of eating fish and fish products, but we do not consume them enough. The main reason for that is the price of the fish and the lack of availability of fresh fish every day in our neighborhood. Fish is prepared in different ways and different spices are used. We need to eat more fish because it has a lot of nutrients and comes from clean rivers and clean sea.
