Summary

Operators should take measures to ensure that wild, sedentary aquatic species are collected only from areas where the water is not contaminated by substances prohibited in these standards.(2.4.5)

Difference

IFOAM specifies necessary measures for collecting wild aquatic species whereas EU Regulation 2092/91 does not cover this.

Justification

Products from wild harvest are expected to be free of residues or contaminants; this is a consumers expectation of organic food.
