RFID is an innovative information technology that potentially allows attaining massive amounts of data. It can be used for traceability of goods trough the different stages of the production chain, as well as in behavioural sciences to track different animals within a group. In this work we provide two examples related to commercial and behavioural study sectors. We firstly applied RFID technology to edible goods supply chain. That application consisted in using tags along the high commercial value supply-chain of fresh fish. The second application consisted in the tracking of behavioural locomotor activity in commercially important crustaceans. In the laboratory, a microcosm tank was endowed with set of RFID controllers below it, each handling group readers in order to contemporarily track four Norway lobsters (Nephrops norvegicus).
