Abstract or Summary
  • The documentation of sustainability constitutes a significant opportunity for product value-adding in the captured fish sector, and a means of differentiating sustainably caught and landed fish from inferior alternatives. In the industry-owned R&D project WhiteFish the main objective is to create a tool for catch and processing SMEs in the captured fish supply chain that will enable them to document degree of sustainability on single batch / trip level. A number of biologic, environmental, social and economic indicators have been defined, and after initial configuration only a few daily recordings are needed to enable the generation of a “Sustainability Certificate”, highlighting degree of sustainability for the batch / trip in question in all these areas, including a rough estimate of carbon footprint. WhiteFishMaLL is the consumer-oriented follow-up to WhiteFish where, after conducting detailed interviews and getting feedback from focus groups, consumers indicated what sustainability-related information they are most interested in, and how they prefer to get access to it. Based on this, batch-specific QR-codes with link to extended product information (including sustainability information) were developed and deployed in cod and haddock supply chains, enabling environmentally conscious consumers in UK fish&chip shops to scan the code and get access to previously unavailable product information. This presentation will use the outcomes and experiences from these two projects to illustrate that value-adding for captured fish products by documenting sustainability is a very real and present possibility.
