Work Package 3: Supply chain relations and regulations

General information

Supply Chain Relationship

WP3 will focus on the main material flow in the supply chain (input-output structure) for the five chosen species based on publicly available data, including European catch/production as well as import and export to and from the EU. Results will form the sample frame/design for the subsequent micro level mapping of different product categories of the chosen species for key market segments (local, niche and commodity (European/international). The mapping will cover catch or hatching/harvesting through the various stages of processing, distribution, retail and food-service marketing channels. Focus will be on evaluating impacts of mandatory and market-based regulatory regimes along with governance and power-relations within the supply chain on risks, costs and rewards to participants. Using key informant interviews and systematic survey methods, primary data - qualitative and quantitative - will be collected from producers’ organisations, sales organisations and individual production companies. Using revealed and stated preference methods, non-market value associated with aquaculture and captive fisheries will be assessed and used for improved societal decision making. Special attention will be paid to the effects of different management systems.


D3.1 - Report on description of value chains and input-output structure

This report describes the main material flow in the supply chain (input-output structure) for the six commodity species (or species groups) that are the focus of PrimeFish; four farmed and two capture: (i) Atlantic Salmon, (ii) Rainbow Trout, (iii) European Sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) and gilthead sea bream (Sparus aurata) (iv) Pangasius catfish (Pangasius hypophthalmus) (v) Atlantic Cod (Gadus morhua) (vi) Atlantic Herring (Clupea herrengus). The latter two species are selected as examples of demersal and pelagic fisheries. Sea bass and sea bass are treated as a single group as almost perfect substitutes, sharing very similar production and post-harvest value-chain characteristics. The report is a synthesis of 17 individual value-chain reports. The report is based on publicly available data, and for each species covers (a) farmed production or landings (b) imports (c) processing (d) export (e) consumption.

D3.2 - Report on market institutional analysis and implications for competitiveness.

D3.3 - Report on costs & benefits of compliance with voluntary marketbased labelling & certification schemes.

D3.4 - Report on evaluation of industry dynamics, opportunities and threats to industry.

D3.5 - Report on population assessment and valuation of nonmarket effects of aquaculture and capture fisheries activities.

D3.6 - Manuscript to a peerreviewed journal seafood industry dynamics and competitiveness.

D3.7 - Manuscript to a peer reviewed journal on non-market values in fisheries and aquaculture.
