The US is a global leader in responsibly managed fisheries. Transparency within seafood industry supply chains is a vital component of this. Product traceability helps to eliminate problems such as overfishing. It prevents illegally caught products from entering the market and ensures ethical labor conditions. The update not only provides food tracing intelligence but gives consumers information about the people behind the product.
Raw products are tracked from the vessel, through production and packaging with QR code traceability. The name and home port of the fishing vessel together with insights into the crew on board are made available. Consumers can become familiar with the people involved in the supply chain and verify the sustainability and quality standards of their products.
It is especially important for consumers to know that their food has not come from a plastic or chemical polluted coastline. While fish and shellfish can provide a multitude of health benefits, studies on ocean plastic pollution reveal the dangers of pollutants and microplastics entering marine ecosystem food chains, including that which is intended for human consumption.
Research from the National Center for Biotechnology Information has highlighted that while US nutritional authorities advise citizens to consume more seafood, concerns over the health risks of plastic pollution and other chemicals entering the food chain may lead to a reduction in consumption.
