Study finds opportunities for artisanal fishers to work with global traceability standards

September 7, 2021 Posted in Headlines

In a new study led by World Wildlife Fund Peru (WWF-Peru), Peru’s mahi and jumbo squid fisheries were used to track how digital technologies can support small-scale fishers’ engagement with global seafood traceability standards.

The study was organized in collaboration with the Global Dialogue on Seafood Traceability (GDST) Secretariat, WWF-US and the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT), and traceability technology companies Trace Register and Plenumsoft Marina. The study tracked the ability to advance a widely used mobile electronic catch documentation and traceability (eCDT) system that allowed the Peruvian fisheries become a part of an interoperable and globally scalable model in alignment with the GDST Standards.
