Providing Seafood Safety Training and Education
Improper seafood handling and storage by fishermen, shellfish gatherers, processors and retailers are of great concern to consumers and cause potential human safety problems. Improved temperature control, handling and sanitation are needed at all levels of harvesting, processing and distribution to protect consumer safety and maximize the economic value of the products. In an ever-changing marketplace, Washington Sea Grant helps buyers and sellers make the most of the challenges and changes they currently face.
