Fresh fish distribution chains: An analysis of three Danish and three Australian chains

Marco Thorup Frederiksen, Allan Bremner

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearch


Information on traceability was gathered for three domestic Danish fish chains typical of the current trading practices in fresh seafood and for three chains exporting products from Australia to Japan. The same standard questionnaires, coupled with personal interviews, were used in all six chains. Traceability is a most important issue in the high value product chains in Australia. No information technology methods, were in evidence. In the Danish chains, nearly all traceability was lost after the collector/auction stage and the only evaluation of quality parameters was by inspection.
