This study concerns the mitigation of risk based on advances in food product traceability technology. A case study of the supply, processing and distribution of wild catch tuna on the island of Sulawesi in Indonesia provides the backdrop for describing and analyzing risk agents and how they are interrelated in the supply chain. The purpose of this study is to develop an inductive, empirically based model concerning risk mitigation in seafood supply networks. It builds upon the seminal works of Forrester's understanding of information distortion, Alderson's transvection model and Thompson's interdependency theory.
