Fresh seafood export
The demand and export of fresh seafood has increased over the past decades and freshness is described as the most valued seafood attribute on all consumer markets. Yet, fresh seafood is one of the most sensitive and perishable food groups. Harvest and post-harvest handling require particular care to retain the nutritional benefits, avoid fish-borne illnesses and preserve the value of the seafood.
A study performed by Triathlon demonstrates the opportunities for value creation in sustainable fresh seafood export for any close-to-sea country. Through optimizing value chain configuration and developing a regulatory system that endorses sustainability, seafood can be transformed from a commodity into a high-value product.
