Smart Fish Labelling to be Presented at Aquaculture UK

17 May 2016, at 1:00am

UK - Researchers from Iceland, Norway, Scotland and Finland are working on a joint project called Smart-Fish that will be presented at the Aquaculture UK conference in the Strathspey Suite, MacDonald Conference Centre, Aviemore on 25 May 2016 from 2 to 3 pm.

Together they are developing smart labels using print technology. Fish can be monitored using this technology from harvest or capture until served at the dinner table.

The core product developed in Smart-Fish is an electronic label which is an electronic device printed on to a thin and flexible label and this will be attached to individual food packages.

This short workshop, hosted by FAI Aquaculture Ardtoe, will present details of the tagging system and capabilities (Oulu University of Applied Sciences and university of Iceland), relation to product quality (NOFIMA) and will ask for suggestions and comments on the labelling system.

This workshop will be of interest to company technical managers, processors, transport companies, and retailers.

To reserve a place at the workshop or for further details contact Jim Treasurer, Research Director, FAI Aquaculture Ardtoe Marine Research Facility at jim.treasurer@faifarms.com
