Project 6.2 IMPLEMENTATION

Seafood traceability to ensure consumer confidence: IMPLEMENTATION

Partners:

6. SINTEF, Norway; 1.†National Institute of Aquatic Resources†(DTU Aqua), 2. Norwegian Institute of Fisheries and Aquaculture (NIFA), Norway; 7. AZTI, Spain;† 75. Fjord Seafood ASA (FS ASA), a SME, Norway;† 76. Trace Tracker†Innovation AS (TTI), a SME, Norway.

The objective of the project is:

-†Study of current information flow in case chains

-†Specify what changes are needed in each link in order to ensure that traceability is in place

-†Test, evaluate and make suggestions for improvement of advanced technology for global batch identification and data catch.†

-†Integrate data captured with advanced technology into traceability software with functionality for data storage and transmission.

In order to analyse and generate sufficient data and information it is necessary to test and evaluate the equipment, including sensors, which are used in the fish sector.

When applying an implementation process, it is necessary to know the information flow before it takes place and especially the loss of information in every chain link. A highly qualified team will assist in the implementation process and in the re-engineering of the different production systems.

The research within the project is described in two major blocks of activities
