Seafood Metrics customer systems allow businesses to collect data either from their suppliers or through self-reporting. In either scenario, seafood volumes &/or items are captured through a simplified process of reporting against fishery IDs or farmed seafood IDs. Customer systems can be customized in several ways, and for businesses with international operations and/or subsidiaries, we offer Seafood Metrics Enterprise systems that can connect and aggregate individual systems for aggregated data capture, monitoring, and evaluation.
Seafood Metrics supplier systems support suppliers who are reporting to Seafood Metrics customer systems through a complimentary system access that helps suppliers understand how their sales meet customers’ expectations. For suppliers that want additional functionality, the fee-based versions of the supplier system provide suppliers with customer-specific reports, reporting capabilities for at-large customers, and access to other datasets such as the Seafood Metrics Human Rights Risk Index (HRRI).
Seafood Metrics wild risk ratings identify risk of assured supply in fisheries, based on FishSource’s wild fisheries assessment methodology, which evaluates management quality, stock health, and environmental impact. Wild fisheries are designated as low-, medium-, and high-risk, to help businesses prioritize where to focus their resources. FishSource wild risk ratings cover MSC-certified fisheries and FIPs, and are available for fisheries at-large.
Seafood Metrics evaluates improvement needs in aquaculture production, based on FishSource’s aquaculture methodology, which evaluates regulatory frameworks, producers’ codes of good practice, water-quality management, disease impact and risk reduction, and marine feed ingredient management. Aquaculture production improvement is measured at the state/provincial level by species, with designations of “significant,” “critical,” and “specific,” based on the degree of improvement needed to meaningfully improve environmental performance.
