Abstract or Summary
  • Within Indonesia and across the region the requirement for traceability within the seafood supply chain is limited to meeting the basic standard of HACCP, namely that the individual fish be traceable back to the 1st supplier, for quality sampling purposes. No common template for traceability exists and hence companies follow the requirements of their buyers from the north to develop their own traceability systems, resulting in a complicated, unapproachable aspect of the fishery sector, which many local companies do not embrace with conviction. Traceability, on top of the ever increasing list of requirements which the north is pushing on its southern suppliers such as sustainability and socially responsible compliance, is increasing the financial burden further and further upstream. Traceability is not important from a fisherman’s perspective, in general he doesn’t even know where his fish goes after it leaves his village, and certainly not which continent it is consumed in, so why spend unnecessary time and effort on it? However, doing the right thing from a sustainability and socially responsible perspective has made this increasingly important. Fish coming from a sustainability project or a Fairtrade implementing project should be differentiated from those which are not. This is what a group of fishermen in central Maluku are realizing and hence are pushing for a robust traceability system to be implemented within the supply chain. The Fairtrade fish which they will send through the system will potentially bring a premium but are the initial costs involved too high a risk for a small scale fishery and how detailed does the system really need to be?
