Goldfish's best-in-class datasets are made for scaled up, supercharged screening.


Here are the databases Goldfish maintains:

Trade Regulations

From expansions to sanctions to complete new rules coming on line, seafood compliance is getting more and more complex.  

That's why Goldfish build and maintains a database of all seafood sourcing data and records requirements for US import regulations and when each regulation applies on a product-by-product basis.  It includes the required formatting of each data element for customs clearance purposes which is transformative for interoperability between B2B and B2G systems.

Excel has been your reliable workhorse for years, but admit it: your spreadsheet sucks. If you use a traceability or ERP platform, it isn't working as hard as it could for you. Imagine smart menus, in-line validation of critical information, errors corrected and much more—all integrated in your existing platform.  That's the power Goldfish's GraphQL API brings to your company.

It's time for a refresh. More than ever, buyers need to reduce their reputational and compliance risks. Consumers want to know that their purchases are aligned with their values.
