Dive Brief:

  • The Seafood Industry Research Fund (SIRF) has secured funding to develop technology that can more quickly identify seafood species using closed-tube DNA bar coding, Progressive Grocer reported.
  • By creating a tool to prevent product mislabeling and species substitution, SIRF could benefit seafood companies, distributors, retailers, restaurants and consumers alike.
  • This tool would be more convenient and more affordable than the US Food and Drug AdministrationsDNA testing, which could make identification testing more accessible to food establishments of all sizes.
