Ocean Outcomes is a science-based sustainable seafood consultancy working hand in hand with commercial fisheries to help them become more sustainable. Ocean Outcomes’ work addresses a range of major fishery challenges contributing to the global fisheries crisis, such as IUU, overfishing, depletion of non-target stocks, habitat impacts, and management system issues.
As a traceability solution to support FIPs and third party certification in Russia, Ocean Outcomes piloted a Catch Tracking System (CTS), implementing best practices in self-reporting and verification of the paper trail to close loopholes in the “first mile,” from producers to processors. By following the CTS protocol, companies capture and upload information to assure customers that they are receiving product traceable back to the source fishery.
Additionally, Ocean Outcomes launched Japan’s first FIP traceability pilot as a part of the Tokyo Bay Sea Perch FIP.
