As a result, this has contributed to a low level of involvement from the District Office which can lead to slow implementation of traceability system nationally. Ikan Biru (blue fish) is a network-based electronic design application (network) that helps in the development of traceability systems in fish processing unit.
Recommendations for implementation Apart from many challenges and issues are faced
Another new initiative that could support the development of the aquaculture traceability system is the development of a database for quality assessment of aquaculture stakeholders. SEAFDEC, through the ASEAN Secretariat, should encourage ASEAN Member States to allocate a reasonable budget for proper implementation of the traceability system in each Member State.
Immediate implementation of traceability system is needed to solve problems of tracing the source of antibiotic residues and contaminants if detected in a sample of aquaculture products. Given that the role of stakeholders, especially wholesalers/processors, is increasingly important in verifying the quality of aquaculture products for consumption and processing purposes, immediate implementation of the traceability system will help their business efficiency.

In general, there is a lack of understanding on the importance of traceability at different stages of the supply chain. 251 Series 2014 on the traceability system for fish and fishery products provides traceability documentation requirements for all stages of the supply chain, including the auction market.
Recommendations for Implementation The following are the recommendations in line with
The Code of Good Aquaculture Practice, developed by BFAR under the EU TRTA project, has been adopted and adapted as a Philippine National Standard by the Bureau of Agriculture and Fisheries Standard (BAFS, 2014). Food safety and traceability regulations for fish and fishery products, and a national standard for good aquaculture practices, have been established to guide stakeholders.
