Fish from the boat - FLAG Aktivregion Ostseeküste - DE

This project has successfully linked increasing demand for fresh and local fish with the use of cheap and widespread IT technologies. The project developed a direct sales system for fish coming from the “AktivRegion Ostseeküste” (Baltic Sea Coast Active Region) that makes use of a dynamic website www.fischvomkutter.de.  Fishermen send details of their catch and their estimated landing time using their mobile phones via SMS to this website while at sea. Customers can then see where, when and what fish will be available for sale directly from the boat when it comes to port.

Commercialisation of new goose barnacle products - FLAG Ria de Vigo-A Guarda - ES

In Galicia, barnacles have traditionally been gathered by fishermen and fisherwomen and sold only as a fresh product, with no processing or added value. This project, promoted by barnacle gatherers, aims to create new products from barnacles, a highly sought after shellfish in Spain. The new products include natural canned barnacles and barnacle pâté with seaweed. These products add value to the barnacle, especially the smaller sized barnacles, which are in less demand and usually sold for a lower price.
