Tech-savvy fisheries: How the public and private sector can use technology to trace seafood and improve fisheries management

Monday, March 7 | 9:15am – 10:00am
Level 1, Room 153 A/B

This session will explore the role of the private and public sector in the use of technology and traceability systems to trace seafood and improve fisheries management. Seafood traceability systems are built on the ability to capture accurate and verifiable information about fish harvests and their derived products throughout the supply chain. Fisheries around the world are exploring the use of technology systems (e.g., vessel monitoring systems, electronic landing receipts and vessel trip reports, electronic monitoring systems, etc.) as a way to improve compliance with regulations, transparency in the seafood supply chain, as well as to assess fish stocks, access new markets and lower the costs of doing business. These technologies can quickly and inexpensively create data collection systems to assess stock condition and establish sound management rules, while simultaneously improving market access for local fishing communities and the fishing industry. During the breakfast conversation guest speakers will share their experiences from both the public and private sector on the use of these technologies and the potential for further expansion and use.
