Fishy business. Get ready for the internet of fins. Swedish fish to get RFID’d from start to finish.

STORY via RFID Journal >>

(Yes that’s fins, not Finns.)

I can’t say that I had heard of the "fish-traceability project" before reading this story, but it seems like an obvious and beneficial use of RFID technology.

The Swedish Board of Fisheries is working of a process to support an RFID-based system to track fish from the boat to the consumer’s plate.

It will be interesting to see how this is implemented. There’s a great deal of potential in gathering micro and macro knowledge of transactions and industries.

Yup, there’s can be some real economies of scale with this project.

Sweet. Swedish fisheries will start NFC tagging as part of the governments “Fish-Traceability Framework.”
