The bar-code system will give each fish a tag that can provide details about the location it was caught, by what boat, its species, and weight and could easily be expanded to include crews on individual boats to help fight against labor abuse.

Now more than a dozen apps, devices and monitoring systems aimed at tracking unscrupulous vessels and the seafood they catch are being rolled out — high-tech solutions some say could also help prevent labor abuse at sea.
