The Trace Register™ system was developed by a team with extensive experience in the seafood industry. It meets the full traceability requirements of producers, processors, and distributors, as well as food service operators and retailers of wild and farmed seafood.


Trace to the pond Full traceability for aquaculture requires going all the way back to the pond, pen, or hatchery and to the day and time of harvest. The Trace Register™ system is designed to capture this level of detail and make it easily accessible.

Capture feed, ingredients, and treatments In fact, our system can go beyond the pond and tell you what feed and treatments are used, where they come from, and how they are produced. It can also capture the ingredients added to finished product as it moves through the supply chain.

With this level of detail readily available at the push of button, you can answer questions, access information, and address problems quickly and comprehensively.

Mandated by the Aquaculture Certification Council (ACC) and endorsed by the Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA), the Trace Register™ system is the traceability solution specified for use with the prestigious Best Aquaculture Practices certification program.

Wild caught

Trace to the vessel Consumers and regulators are increasingly worried about illegal fishing.  More and more often, they demand proof that wild seafood is legal and from sustainable sources. They require that it can be traced back to the fishing vessel and the location of capture.  The Trace Register™ system is designed to present this level of detail, even showing the specific coordinates of where the fish was caught.

Manage documentation As product moves through the supply chain, it accumulates both paper-based and electronic documentation. This includes official paperwork such as fishing licenses and quotas, mate’s certificates, import documentation, and company-generated information such as lab reports, product certificates, and trans-shipment records.

Efficiently handling this documentation can be a real challenge, especially when there is a problem or when the origins of product need to be confirmed. Trace Register has made managing and sharing information a straightforward activity. Important documents can be easily loaded and stored in the Trace Register database and reviewed by authorized users at any stage of the supply chain.

Designed for your business The Trace Register™ system fits with the way you do business. It does not require new processes, numbering schemes, or special labeling. Our system is designed to work with the way you do business and the numbering schemes that you, your suppliers, and your customers use.
