Calculate the recreational fishing impact to the environment.
The aim of the calculator is to demonstrate in a simple way how simple decisions affect the climate impact (carbon footprint), energy consumption and eutrophication caused by food consumption, in this case wild fish.
Basic structure and environmental impacts considered. The calculator covers all major phases of the simple product system of wild fish (recreational fishing) cooked for food at home. The phases considered are:
The accompanying processes are also included, i.e. electricity generation and fuel production.
Emission and energy consumption data is collected from the earlier LCA studies of MTT and SYKE and public databases (e.g. Ecoinvent and LIPASTO). The main emission covered were N and P emissions to the waters (affecting aquatic eutrophication), and N2O, CH4 and CO2 emissions to the atmosphere (affecting climate change).
All results are calculated to 1 kilo fish fillet.
