The overall objective of the KILREIS project is to ensure that the information loss in the pilot chain from salmon farming, through processing to export and consumption, is minimal, and that the fish/product can be traced both forwards and backwards.
Salmon farmed and slaughtered by Aalesundfish, and smoked at Kritsen Landivisiau was chosen as the case study. This report describes in detail the materal flow and information flow through Kritsen Landivisiau, a smoke house in Bretagne, France. The report also points out where information is lost in the current system, and recommends changes to existing routines and practices.
