Ornamental fish were kept in captivity from ancient times. Gradually, the ornamental fish industry became a profitable enterprise. Color, size and shape are important traits when we describe a fish as a phenotypically uniform line, strain or breed. Numerous varieties of aquarium fish have been artificially modified regarding their body shape or coloration. Several varieties of fish are being artificially colored by painting and tattooing to improve their marketability. All these practices cause many health problems for fish. Education of the customers is a very important thing, because artificially modified fish continue to exist because of demand. [less ▲]

Humans kept ornamental fish in their homes from ancient times. During time, the ornamental fish industry became a profitable enterprise. Color, size and shape are important traits when we describe a fish as a phenotypically uniform line, strain or breed; a standardized color, shape and size describe better a fish population and thus it is promoted better on the market. Several varieties of fish are being artificially colored to improve marketability. Painted, dyed or tattooed fish are terms for a new variety of pet fish whose scales have been transformed from monochrome silver into vivid pigmentations using artificial colors or lasers. These practices produce many health problems for fish. We should not to put money above the life and welfare of any living thing. Education of the customers is a very important thing, because artificially colored fish continue to exist because of demand. [less ▲]

L'épeautre est une culture ancienne, pratiquée depuis des siècles, et qui a été progressivement remplacée, comme le seigle, par le froment. Il s'est cependant maintenu modestement dans quelques régions aux sols plus pauvres et au climat plus rigoureux que ceux qui conviennent le mieux au froment. Les aspects "santé" prenant de plus en plus d'importance dans les pays riches, la bonne réputation de l'épeautre en ce domaine a permis un récent regain d'intérêt pour cette culture, dont les prix se sont envolés au cours de l'année 2014. Cette évolution est-elle durable ou ne sera-t-elle qu'un feu de paille ? [less ▲]

The purpose of this paper was to identify several of consumers’ perceptions, beliefs and actions related to organic food and also possible differences between groups of consumers. The studied variables were: interest or indifference in eating organic vs conventional food, food label information reading behaviour, perceived healthiness degree of organic food, perceived seriousness of the preference for organic food. The study revealed: an average concern for the food type (organic vs conventional: 57% of the sample declare they care what kind of food they eat); a high interest in label information (76% declared they read the food label in at least 26% of the cases when they buy food); dominant perception of organic food as a healthier option than conventional food (by 95% of the tested consumers) and as opposite to a fad (by 62% of the subjects); a statistically significant difference between men and women in terms of their appreciations (perceptions) of organic food as being healthier than conventional food (p=.036); a statistically significant difference between people who cared if they ate organic vs conventional food and those who didn’t care in the levels of label reading frequency (p=.000).

This study has in view to investigate grossly the Romanian rabbit market as starting point for a future deeper and larger economic approach of the Romanian rabbit market as part of the European market. In Romania, the rabbit meat is expensive (4.48-9.01 Euro perkg), and this is due to its lownumber of consumers. The local rabbit production in Romania is supported only by small farms, and these are not competitive. Rabbit meat imported from Spain is con siderably cheaper than the one local produced. The profitable rabbit farming in Romania is oriented to brood-stock production and pet animalsproduction. Such animals, sold as pure breeds, bring considerable income: 33.81-100.00 Euro per adult animal, depending on breed, variety, size, age, and pedigree. However, Romania has some geo-pedo-climatic advantages which could help the farmers to expand their activity also to meat production and export, and make it more profitable. [less ▲]

Transylvanian Giant Rabbit is a highly polyphyletic breed and has its origins in many distinct populations of rabbits: the common Romanian rabbit, the Grey Giant, the Giant Papillon and the Californian. It was created and consolidated by Petrescu-Mag et al (2009, 2014). This paper is a French version of the official standard for the judgement of the exhibition Transylvanian Giant Rabbit (Petrescu-Mag et al 2012). We respected the general rules presented by European Association of Poultry Pigeon and Rabbit Breeders (2010) and fit them to the specific characteristics of our breed. [less ▲]

The paper examines and argues why environmental issues are matters of security, offering conceptual clarifications upon "environmental security". The range of issues considered as "environmental security" subjects are numerous and diverse and one of these is related to food. Food production, storage, distribution and quality have always been linked to environ mental conditions. Food security through organic agriculture contributes to environ mental security. Scientists often point to three factors as responsible for environ mental state - population, technology, and consumption, but consumption seems to get the least attention. We studiad consumer behaviour as source of positive and negative consequences with impact on environmental security. The study case presents the results of a survey targeted on organic food consumers from NW Romania. We found that 73% of subjects believe that organic food helps protecting the environ ment more than conventional food and 60% believe that animal organic food comes from animais that had better life (than conventional ones). We found a statistically significant difference between people who believe humanity faces natural environ ment problems which are very threatening and those who do not concerning the strength of beliefs that organic food helps protecting the environment more than conventional food (p<O.05). We observed a direct, strong relationship between the strength of beliefs that organic food has capacity to preserve existence of traditional products and strength of beliefs that organic food has the capacity to protect natural environ ment [r=.506, p=.OOO]. The paper defends the idea that consumers' beliefs such as those related to nature protection or animal welfare through organic food are valuable instruments that help to strengthen the environ mental security.

Survey on cereal resources in Wallonia according to their different uses. Survey on cereal resources in Wallonia according to their different uses. More than 60% of the arable cropped area in Wallonia is dedicated to cereals. Cereal chains were initially aimed at ensuring food security but are now progressively oriented towards new non-food uses. Walloon cereal chains are now having to face up to new global challenges: to ensure the competitiveness and sustainability of vegetal and animal chains, to match society's expectations and to meet the biomass needs for energy uses and bio-based products. Within this framework, this research aims to evaluate the environmental and socio-economic sustainability of future scenarios of current and potential food and non-food uses for Walloon cereals. This paper, the first in a series of two, presents the current picture of Walloon cereal crops and their uses. Various steps are analyzed: production, collection, wholesale and processing. Four main uses characterize cereal processing: the so-called "4Fs", representing Food (human food uses), Feed (animal feed uses), Fuel (energy uses) and Fiber (material uses). Data collected from stakeholders in the Walloon cereal chain enabled us to assess cereal flows for the "4Fs", drawing a qualitative and a quantitative picture of Walloon cereal resources including the key elements of the cereal chains. This approach serves as a basis for a prospective exercise, described in a companion paper, which develops potential uses for Walloon cereal resources at the 2030 horizon. [less ▲]
