During the last ten years, the fish consumption is increased about 27%. This increase depending from several factors, such as: population growth (+12%); greater awareness of the nutritional value of fish products; development of new aquaculture technologies; improvement of distribution channels. In order to safeguard humankind’s heritage, innovation strategies for food industry need to be concerned not only with technological changes but also with the scientific (nutritional, medical), social and environmental changes (sustainability, transparency). Aquaculture is an expansion industry and has the potential to satisfy the worldwide demand of fish production related to the global population growth. Technological and methodological innovations are needed not only to optimize the production but also to assure its sustainability. With this point of view, in this work, researchers, engineers and enterprises worked together to develop a system to be placed in sea aquaculture plants. The system is composed by several devices that work following IoT paradigm, and is able to solve practical issues emerged from a case study in South of Italy. The data collected by the system, conveniently enriched by other specific information, will be used for traceability purpose in order to satisfy the emerging information needs of Food Citizenship. The system’ devices, the production process (as-is and to-be), the plant maintenance process (as-is) and the traced data are described.
