Health of young European families and fish consumption

Major achievements in 2004

The work so far included the development of experimental diets to be used in the intervention study and the development and validation (in three countries) of a food frequency questionnaire. This tool is required for the assessment of compliance to the experimental diets. The staffs in the centres in Iceland, Spain and Ireland were trained. The detailed protocol for the intervention study was developed and the intervention could start in October 2004, after approval of protocols by national Medical Ethical Committees and recruitment of subjects. For the study salmon (from aquaculture) was obtained from Nutreco and Atlantic cod was bought in Iceland.
