Fish from the fishing boat

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

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.
