The SUREFISH project will implement and demonstrate a global solution to assure fish authentication and reduce fraud based on RFID, Blockchain, TTI and tamper-proof technologies as well as harmonize and validate related analytical methods and create a trans-national laboratories network in 36 months.
The global solution offered by SUREFISH regarding safety, traceability and authenticity for the Mediterranean fishery supply chain (fishing, on board processing, in land processing, retailers/importer), is made up by two technological solutions for safety and traceability and a third solution for authenticity by 12 harmonised analytical protocols.
The SUREFISH methodology is based on a 3-phase approach. Each of these steps is composed of WPs which include the tasks designed to realise the project objectives and ensuring the innovation impacts:
Phase 1 Capacity building (WP2-WP3, M1-M18): WP2 (led by ITENE)
Phase 2 Demonstration and Integration (WP5-WP6, M18-M36): WP5 (led by INSTM)
Phase 3 Maximization of impacts towards Mediterranean countries (WP4 & WP7, M1-M36): WP4 (led by
