RFID in the fishing sector
Total traceability of fish and sustainable box pool management
In 2008, the European Union regulation came into force that fishery products must be traceable and monitored throughout the chain. This within the framework of the Common Fisheries Policy, which must ensure the sustainable exploitation of fish stocks from a biological, economic and environmental point of view. In addition, in order to protect consumers, batches of fish must be traceable quickly when food safety issues are identified.
To this end, uniform identification and traceability of fish boxes and their contents is required during all phases of capture, sale and processing, down to the consumer's plate.
The ability to trace fish boxes is also an essential link in limiting the loss of fish boxes at the fish auction. With an efficient box pool tracking system every box can be traced and located.
With the electronic logbook E-Catch onboard the vessels, the electronic sales system and administrative package A-Fish for total auction automation and P-Fish, the ERP package for the fish processing industry, Aucxis products have been supporting the entire chain for quite some time.
Today, with the use of Aucxis RFID technology, all fish boxes and their contents can also be traced and efficiently managed.
- Tags: Aucxis developed in her RFID lab the most suitable tag for use on fish boxes, as well as the exact location of the tag on the boxes. This was done in close cooperation with several leading manufacturers of fish boxes in the sector. The tag is available in three sizes: small, medium and large.

- Scanning equipment: Aucxis supplies self-developed or standard RFID readers: RFID forklift terminals, RFID portals, industrial input terminals for box management and RFID handheld scanners. Via control stations the quality of barcode and RFID on the fish boxes is validated.
- R-Connect: the Aucxis middleware package, processes all data collected by the various data collectors for parent applications.
- F-Track: F-Track: portal site on which the track & trace data is managed. Here the location of all fish crates and their contents can be consulted in real time through all steps in the chain (ship, auction, buyer, transporter, processor). An innovative stock and pool management system ensures that the loss of fish boxes is significantly reduced..
