From sea to table

The seafood is traceable means that we know where they are trapped, when they are caught, and with what tools. Marine and water has long worked to develop a traceability system to track the fish's way from sea to table.

It was authorities ' need for improved trapping information and consumers ' need to feel comfortable with where, when and how fishing or farming took place, as did the EU introduced stricter traceability requirements than what applies generally for food. It is important for the authorities to be able to trace back from retail to fishing for verification purposes, have the control over quotas and contribute to fishery becomes more sustainable.

We, as the auction's first recipient and it is we who starts the chain of traceability of fish and seafood that arrive to us from our fishermen. This is done by marking up the parties and submit information to the Sea and the water authority's traceability system. All companies then will notice and report the information to the traceability system because they sell lots of other companies. Requirements applicable until the company that sells to a retailer. The retailer has an obligation to be aware of the information back in the ranks, but the retailer does not report into marine and water. The retailer informs the consumer by a sign on the fish or in the venue so that the consumer can read.

The following information shall be made available to the consumer without having to ask.Trade name (Swedish species name) botanical name (Latin name) the production method (caught, caught in freshwater or cultured) catch or production area For fish caught in the sea, the name of the subarea or Division listed in FAO list of fishing areas, noted.
