This review presents the current status of knowledge on e-commerce trade of groceries, and perishable foods, and offers highlights of the different important aspects crucial for trading quality seafood through e-commerce channels. The perishable nature of seafood requires particular care to maintain its quality and nutritional content throughout the supply chain to avoid waste and losses. E-commerce of grocery goods is increasing and knowledge about what is needed to secure the quality of highly perishable products through e-commerce channels is lacking. This involves knowledge into several disciplines. Thus, a cross-disciplinary search through 35 databases was conducted that revealed 2575 articles using different search words relevant for the diverse disciplines in combination with e-commerce. Results reveal limited focus on seafood and e-commerce and need for greater cross-disciplinary research attention in the future.
