Abstract

New Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are playing a key role in Citizen Science outbreak, allowing a wider public participation. The increasingly availability of smartphone can be exploited as a tool for easy and quickly data collection. The idea of the realisation of a smartphone App arises inside a Citizen Science project on sustainable consumption of seafood, “Il pesce giusto”. In fact, the overexploitation, the employment of destructive fishing practices and unsustainable techniques, as well as the widespread illegal fishing, have led to a loss of marine biodiversity and a food resources decline. A monitoring of marine resources consumption is now necessary. Our aim has been to design an App that allows to monitor the sustainability of consumers’ purchases through different criteria: size, origin, production and seasonality of the fish species. This tool can be practically utilised by citizen and can provide us information of the sustainability of marine resources sold in the markets.
