Although other books address specific aspects of the seafood industry, few, if any, offer both the breadth and depth of information that the editors and authors of The Seafood Industry provide here. In this comprehensively rewritten and updated second edition, the book covers the full spectrum of seafood topics, following the products from the water to the dinner plate and at every stop in between.
Information and insights into the handling and processing of every commercially important species of finfish and shellfish are presented across 29 chapters. New material in the second edition includes chapters on HACCP regulation, surimi, waste (by-product) utilization, species identification, biological safety of shellfish, as well as toxins, allergens, and sensitivities. The authors focus primarily on the industry in the US although, where innovations or activities in other countries have impacted the US industry, they are covered too.
The book has been designed for seafood processors, wholesale buyers, and retailers to understand and put to practical application whilst also being of interest to regulators, students and scientists with an interest in food, fisheries, and aquaculture.About the Author:
