i-FishSAT

Status date: 24 May 2016

Deterioration of fish stocks in the EU in recent years has necessitated increased tightening of allowable catch limits, but the means of calculating and implementing new parameters remains problematic. On the commercial side, fishing vessels operate as independent entities, choosing the species they target and the place of landing. Commercialization of their catch is most frequently through a coastal auction. Auctions are dotted along the European coast and generally operate independently, a situation that creates a series of micro-markets, each governed by local supply and demand with consequences such as shortage of a given species at one auction and a glut of the same species. The result is waste of a natural resource and valuable nutrition as well as unequal distribution of revenues.  The objective of this demonstration project is to take the work undertaken in preceding feasibility studies, and to move it from the world of research to that of operational reality by providing a comprehensive, integrated set of preoperational fisheries seafood commercialisation services to users and stakeholders alike.
