The ocean-to-table movement is getting a high-tech helping hand.

Intel

has just revealed a public demo that finds it showcasing how a seafood supply chain project can be built using its open-source Sawtooth Lake codebase. As such, the project is the latest that finds the tech giant illustrating the power of its offering, following a bond-trading demo launched late last month.

The seafood traceabilty project is designed to increase accuracy of record-keeping from the time a fish is caught to help ensure compliant food storage conditions.

In what is presented as a case study, Internet of Things (IoT) sensors are used to track data on a blockchain, recording data including ownership, position, location, temperature, humidity, motion, shock and tilt.

Data for four transactions from October of last year was also made public as part of the release.

According to Intel:

"The final buyer can access a complete record of information and trust that the information is accurate and complete."

Overall, the solution is part of a larger push within the open-source Hyperledger project to make available platforms for others to build on. To date, projects that have gone public through the Linux-led initiative include IBM’s Fabric and JP Morgan’s Quorum, among others.
