Fisheries Information Technology and TraceTales

Fisheries industry in Indonesia and globally are now facing various challenges, including fish laundering which the illegally caught fishes get into the legal supply chain. To solve these problems, we believe that Fisheries Information Technology is the ANSWER. Through the data collecting, processing, and reporting done electronically in all stages when coming into the processing company, customers can get accurate information about the seafood they consume more efficiently. It also contributes to tackling Illegal, Unreported, and Unregulated (IUU) fishing by enabling tracing possible for every piece of fish distributed.

To support this, PT Sahabat Laut Lestari developed TraceTales as a trusted traceability software. TraceTales enable seafood processing companies to digitally capture and manage data collected through all stages, from receiving the raw materials, processing, packaging, to shipping and distribution cycle. Using the touch-screen input, TraceTales software has a user-friendly system operated within the Local Area Network (LAN), resulting in proper deployment even in areas with poor or unstable internet connection. TraceTales records the data from the weighing scales automatically and the printed label containing a unique QR code is tagged along the process. When the customers scan the QR code attached to the packaging of the fish, they can see all detailed information about the origin of the fish, whether it is sourced from fair-trade certified fishermen, the processing date, the quality grade, the weights, and so on.
