We’d like to take this time to wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
It’s been a hectic last few months for our little startup with so many firsts and an exciting 2018 ahead of us!
Here’s a few things that have happened in the last few weeks:
We’ve welcomed three very bright and talented members to the TraSeable Solutions team – Jasha joins us as a Traceability Support Officer in a part-time capacity and Leba and Shaazreen have joined us as interns.
Jasha and Leba have backgrounds in Marine Science and Marine Affairs together with experience in Fiji’s coastal fisheries while Shaaz is a final year Software Engineering student at the University of the South Pacific.
It’s finally out!
We’ve been very fortunate to be supporting the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and Sea Quest (Fiji) Ltd in the beta program for the Viant platform built by the folks at ConsenSys. We’re using Viant for a “bait to plate” use case for seafood traceability on the blockchain and are very excited to be one of the few companies in the world to be part of this program and to have an early play with Viant.
We’ll write more on this in the near future.

Our first Fish labels are in!
Looking forward to getting these fish labels on individual fish exported from Fiji in early 2018. Scan the QR code or visit the website address to see what type of information you can look forward to getting about your fish.
We’re keen to hear your thoughts on these labels and the story.
We expect to go through several iterations of these to refine the design and materials used so your input now can help shape where this goes.
More to come in 2018
And don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten that we’ll be posting on the use of blockchain as one part of the solution to global fisheries transparency. That will come out as a 2 part post in January 2018.
Until 2018, stay safe out there folks!
