On October 10th, in Brussels, a workshop on traceability of fisheries and aquaculture products brings together representatives of the European Commission, the Secretariat of the Council, the European Parliament, the EU Member States and representatives of the Advisory Councils.
Knowing the origin of fish is important so that we have the guarantee that it was legally caught. Accurate information of its capture needs to be passed on from net to plate, which isn’t always easy. During this workshop, participants will explore different traceability solutions, such as bar codes and digital systems as well as blockchain technology and standardisation. The results of these discussions will support the on-going revision of the European Commission's proposal for new provisions on traceability within the EU control regulation, currently under discussion by the co-legislators.
