As a consequence of the Global pandemic, Supply Change Management (SCM) is becoming more complex due to market uncertainty across value chains; from sourcing materials to logistics and production. With the development of contemporary technology, blockchain may allay this worry by providing the SCM industry with automated software solutions. Blockchain is an emerging technology that supports a distributed and transparent approach to transactions between various entities. Due to increased digital usage across many sectors, the technology is being adopted more commonly in real-world business applications that aim to achieve transparency and security along a distributed chain of processes. Examining how these applications are deployed, based on the respective domain creates opportunities for future research and in advancing current thought processes of supply chain practitioners. This research aims to assess the fishing industry and provide a solution to trace the complete seafood lifecycle by capturing, recording, and tracking all relevant activities and data (e.g., video, photo, documents) from "bait to plate" and provide an open and immutable history record for each transaction in the supply chain of this lifecycle. The research offers valuable insight for supply chain practitioners into how blockchain technology has the potential to disrupt existing supply chain deployments and highlights some challenges of its successful adoption. Emerging blockchain applications aim to help businesses, including supply-chain transparency for a wide range of products.
