[Webinar] The importance of DNA testing for seafood sourcing

WATCH THE RECORDING OF THE WEBINAR NOW!

Frauds are common and difficult to identify in the fishing industry. Valuable species can be replaced with ones less expensive, more readily available and sometimes potentially harmful to health. Furthermore the requests from consumers about sustainability and traceability of the purchased products are increasing.

Genetic method of species identification currently is the only one able to recognize, characterize and categorize the fish species which a sample belongs, especially in case of morphological similarity or after production processes.

Friend of the Sea, in collaboration with FEM2-Ambiente, has chosen to adopt the DNA Barcoding method (or DNA barcode) to avoid fraud and promote sustainable fishing.

This webinar will be of interest to seafood fisheries, seafood processing companies, retail, restaurants, NGOs, journalists and bloggers.
