The fishing industry has to maintain a fragile balance between environmentally friendly, sustainable fishing and an aquaculture that is ecologically harmless. In doing so, it is confronted with an ever-widening gap between demand and resources. While the consumption of food made from fish, crustaceans and mollusks is growing disproportionately, the primary production of the oceans is continuously decreasing due to climate change, environmental pollution, and overfishing. This trend is confronting the global fishing industry with an increasingly restrictive regulatory policy in the form of catch quotas and fishing protection zones on the one and well-informed and critical consumers on the other hand.
In the future, seafood will play a key role in the daily diet of large parts of the world's population as well as within high-priced and exclusive price segments of the food market. This increases the need for effective food fraud prevention. Against this backdrop, the industry needs to take action in several areas: it must enable cost-efficient, ecological production and shape global supply chains for its perishable products sustainable and transparent. Additionally, it has to tap into new market and target group segments through the use of technology and innovation.
