Hovedbudskap:

In February 2005 FEFAC (the European Feed Manufacturers Federation) submitted a document to the European Commission proposing to increase the maximum permitted content for cadmium in fish feed from 0.5 to 1.0 mg/kg (88% dry matter).

The reasons given for this proposed increase were primarily related to background occurrence of cadmium in fish feed. 

The Norwegian Food Safety Authority has therefore requested the Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food Safety, Panel on animal feed, to comment whether the increase in the maximum content for cadmium in fish feed proposed by FEFAC would affect fish health or pose a threat to the consumer.
