La Fundacion MarViva
The goal of this project was to generate recommendations to improve a fish traceability system. This system was piloted by MarViva, a non-profit marine protection organization in Costa Rica. We conducted field work in the communities of Palito and Costa de Pájaros to gather opinions from the participants about this pilot program and made observations on its implementation. We concluded that the current system is prone to human error, leading to inaccurate documentation. An electronic database was designed to reduce this error and expedite the data entry process. We also updated current traceability materials based on feedback we collected during our field work.
