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

Preparing for the future: Small-scale Fisheries Digitalisation in the Baltic Sea and Northern Sea

According to the latest development where the parliament has approved new EU fisheries control rules under which all EU fishing vessels will be monitored and their catches will be reported electronically, to ensure full traceability. The revamped EU fisheries control system endorses the role of Fish-X being a key project to digitalise EU small-scale fisheries and make them ready for the compliance of new fisheries control rules.

Citing this latest development, Fish-X will organise a webinar on the topic of “Preparing for the future: Small-scale Fisheries Digitalisation in the Baltic Sea and Northern Sea” on Friday, October 27, 2023, at 10:00 – 11:30 am (CEST).

Small-scale fisheries play a critical role in the global seafood supply chain and local economies, but the sector is facing several challenges in the Baltic Sea and Northern Sea. such as the over-exploitation of fish stocks, severe cuts of fishing quotas, limited fishing & sales opportunities, decreasing attractiveness of the sector for young talent, shrinking SSF, and the increasing conflict of interests in coastal and marine areas.

Embracing digitalisation can empower small-scale fisheries to adapt, thrive, and contribute to sustainable seafood production. With the increasing availability of digital tools and resources, there is now an opportunity to improve fishing and catching behaviors to support the small-scale fisheries in their efforts to manage their businesses more sustainably.

The 5th webinar of the Fish-X Project will bring together experts from maritime authorities, SSF, research and academia to discuss key topics related to small-scale fisheries in the regions. The discussion will focus on the overview of SSF that will cover the current state of the industry and its challenges, including issues related to sustainability, economic viability, and social well-being.

Discussion will highlight the potential benefits of digital technologies for SSF and the challenges in implementing them effectively to promote sustainability in the sector. The webinar is free of charge.

Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to gain knowledge, ask questions, and engage in a meaningful discussion with industry leaders and professionals.

We look forward to your participation and connecting with you.
