Fish is one of the most highly perishable commodities and the public requires continuous reassurance about its quality. Furthermore, consumer taste is moving to more highly perishable fish products which require more careful attention in preparation and storage. This book is international in scope, and provides practical advice on all aspects of this subject, from harvesting to retailing. It provides a comprehensive revision which takes full account of all new findings and ideas to emerge in the five years since publication of the last edition.
