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.

Today starts the online advanced course “Innovative tools and methods for ensuring seafood authenticity” organised by Ciheam Zaragoza, Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and SEATRACES Interreg Atlantic Area.

Participants from Turkey, Morocco, Portugal, Egypt, Tanzania, India, Argentina, Algeria, Libia, Lebanon, Tunisia, Greece, United Kingdom, Sweden, Guinea or Spain, learning about regulatory requirements for combating seafood fraud or the most relevant methods for the identification of species, the geographic origin, the method of production and other authentication issues, among other topics.

SEATRACES is exploring rapid and portable molecular biology methodologies for #authentication of certain commercially important #fish species in the #Atlantic Area, especially those which still represent a challenge to identify, such as Tunas. Dr Elisa Jiménez AZTI, explain it to us.

Today Carmen G. Sotelo and Marta Muñoz-Colmenero are attending the Food Integrity 2021 Conference, they will present SEATRACES results in two short communications: “Authenticity of Atlantic Bluefin tuna (ABFT) products in Spain: a case study” and “Development of a recombinase polymerase amplification assay (RPA) for rapid detection of Atlantic Bluefin tuna” respectively. Both works are focused on the authenticity of the Thunnus thynnus species which is one of the most appreaciated tuna species in the world.
