Here you’ll learn how to assess quality in whole / filleted fish and raw shellfish. It will also introduce you to different methods of assessing fish using quality assessment schemes, such as TORRY and Quality Index Monitoring and how to process seafood products, such as smoked fish. Poor quality seafood will never go unnoticed again!
