Fish-X in a Nutshell

We believe in a Common Responsibility to foster Sustainable Fisheries and Marine Biodiversity.

  • We drive digital innovation to enable the sustainable exploitation of common natural resources.
  • We develop accessible technologies to empower small-scale fisheries and grow their credibility towards the customer.

Within the Fish-X project, we are therefore developing a Fisheries Dataspace, a Traceability App, and an Insight Platform – based on smart orchestrated architecture and open interoperable technology via Gaia-X.

Upcoming Event

High-level Event at the European Parliament

The Fish-X Consortium is going to hold its first High-level Event, in-person and invite-only, at the European Parliament on June 29, 2023. The event is being coordinated by the WWF European Policy Office (EPO) and it will focus on how the digital transition in EU Fisheries can help better implement the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP). The high-level event is co-hosted by two Members of the European Parliament, MEP Pierre Karleskind, Chair of the Parliamentary PECH Committee, and MEP Francesco Guerreiro, Member of the PECH Committee, who will respectively give the introductory and closing remarks at the event.

The high-level event aims to further engage in the discussion at EU level on existing small-scale fisheries (SSF) digital tools and opportunities to improve the enforcement of monitoring, control, and surveillance measures.  There will be a presentation on the Fish-X Project and its expected outcomes including Fish-X Dataspace, Insight Platform, Traceability Application, and EU Fisheries Roadmap for Digitalisation. The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion with the Fisheries Counsellor of the Spanish Permanent Representation to the European Union, Ramón de la Figuera Morales, as well as a specialist in artificial intelligence and a representative of the sister project ‘Every Fish’. The event is by-invitation only and guests may include MEPs, European Commission and Council representatives, fishers’ representatives, researchers, and civil society.
