In this study wild- and wild caught, farmed raised cod were evaluated in 403 households (approximately 1000 consumers) in the Netherlands. The expected and experience quaity of the both product characteristics were measured in relation to information about the origin of the cod. Also the effect of freshness of the farmed cod was investigated. The quality profile of farmed and wild cod, based upon the evaluated product properties was similar. Expected and experienced quality on both products did not differ very much from each other. Farmed cod seemed to be appreciated after the consumption as good as wild cod. Higher scores were given on some quality attributes in case information was given about the origin of the cod (wild or farmed).
