Meshes of scallops (Argopecten purpuratus) which are landed in the Bay of Sechura will be identified from now on with barcodes on security seals as part of a new traceability system to be implemented for the first time in the country.
This was announced by Deputy Director of Aquaculture Supervision of the National Fish Health Agency (SANIPES), Adrian Paredes Espinal, who said the company Wizard Business Solutions SAC (WBS) is responsible for administering the Traceability System of Live Bivalve Molluscs (Sitramobi) software.
This initiative is part of the management process of the sector engaged in this mollusc production promoted by the government in order to make the European Union (EU) lift the restrictions imposed on imports of this product.
Each bar code contains encrypted information with data on the capture request, which is supposed to prevent cloning.
"This solution has two settings. The web part that will be handled by all the components of the production chain and the moving part that will be managed by the SANIPES," Paredes Espinal explained.
"Through this system, it will be possible to consult on the documentation and the capture request will be made," he added.
The Sitramobi software consists of a mobile device that is similar to a smartphone that will be handled by SANIPES inspectors.
Through the traceability system it will be possible to learn about the entire route of the product, from the area where it was collected until it reaches the plants.
"This new traceability system will be a model in all that is national mariculture and later this project will be replicated in other parts of the country," said the Deputy Minister of Fisheries, Juan Carlos Requejo, according to El Regional de Piura.
Landings will be monitored at the docks and piers using a mobile application that makes it possible to cancel the seals that are left and check data.
The Regional Director of Production, Indira Fabian Ferrer, announced plans to publish a resolution to create the Regional Committees of Artisanal Fisheries Surveillance (COREVIPA), which is responsible for controlling and monitoring the loading and unloading of scallops.
