In many foreign markets Norway is the preferred land of origin for seafood products. Documentation of the Norwegian origin of seafood products is therefore important for producers and exporters of seafood. Some of the fish which is exported from Norway is further processed abroad and the documentation of Norwegian origin is lost.
The Norwegian Seafood Export Council (NSEC) wishes to analyse the requirements which must be met by foreign producers in order to be allowed to use the ‘Norway’ logo.
The NSEC requires a solution which secures traceability back to Norwegian caught fish for products using the ‘Norway’ logo. In addition it would be desirable that the scheme is practical and can be subject to controls. Four theoretical models, designed to fulfil these needs are described in this report. This report also describes how implementation testing may be carried out.
