Commercial and scientific name of the species

Each EU country draws up and publishes a list of the commercial designations accepted in its territory, including accepted local or regional names. 

The common organisation of the markets requires that any product sold to the consumer bears the commercial designation of the species and its scientific name. 

To ensure consistency, each EU country draws up and publishes a list of the commercial designations accepted in its territory, including accepted local or regional names. These lists can be accessed by clicking on the links below.

The Commission has set up an information system gathering all the commercial designations recognised in the EU and other useful information, such as scientific name, production method and catch area. This tool is not the official source of information on the commercial designations accepted in the member states: only the national lists provided below are the authoritative source.
