What is SEATRACES?

SEATRACES is an Interreg Atlantic Area Project aimed at demonstrating to stakeholders (production, industry, markets) and consumers that Labelling and Traceability are essential to protect and valorize Atlantic Area’s fisheries and aquaculture. SEATRACES will develop a set of tools for implementing traceability and Seafood Labeling using smart-phone and other innovative technologies, thus facilitating a Sustainable Seafood Production

What we do

The SEATRACES consortium is composed by experts in different areas, such as those related to fisheries sustainability and conservation, genetic authentication of marine organisms, consumer studies, certification of traceability, bivalve aquaculture as well as government agencies dealing with fisheries, and official control laboratories for foods, working together for developing new and standardised authentication techniques, implementing a European virtual facility for seafood authentication and demonstrating the benefits of seafood traceability and labelling.

One of the objectives of SEATRACES is to develop new reliable molecular tools that allow the food industry to trace the geographic origin of mussels consumed in Spain, in order to ensure seafood quality, safety and identity.

European consumers may love seafood 💕🐟, but they also happen to be quite bad at identifying it. In a study where we asked 720 people from six European countries to identify six commonly consumed commercial fish species, the consumers correctly identified on average about two out of the six species presented.

Spanish respondents performed best, with an average accuracy score of 38% whereas UK respondents performed the worst with an average accuracy score of 18%.

Here we argue that more knowledgeable consumers would also likely be more aware and responsible in their eating habits and would be able to exercise more informed purchasing choices.
