Designing new services for the fishing industry

Designing new services for the fishing industry







Marine Management Office aims to ensure that exports of fish to the EU remain efficient and regulated post-Brexit. Catch certification will potentially be needed for the £572M of English fish sales to the EU.


We were tasked with carrying out a discovery project investigating the flow of fish through the food chain, from sea to plate, in order to prepare for the required recording for compliance and to design a new transport documentation process.


We specifically analysed the user needs around three key areas: catch recording, catch certificates, and transportation documents. Following our investigation, we will create a summary of user needs, an analysis of technical implications and architecture, and concepts for new digital services.

Needs analysis for catch recording; catch certificates and transportation documents.
