  • The most recent advances in seafood quality and safety techniques
  • Technological and economic impact in seafood production, processing, and consumption
  • Includes more than 25 edited reports by food scientists specializing in seafood

New research and development in biotechnology, microbiology, computer modeling and advanced analytical techniques has led to improvements in processing and product safety. This new book provides extensive new information on these developments, as well as research directions and challenges for the future.

Fereidoon Shahidi and Benjamin K. Simpson, well-known authorities on food safety and science, have compiled in one volume a complete state-of-the-industry review that includes new processes and emerging technologies in seafood quality and safety. The 28 contributors discuss recent advances in:

  • Food processing techniques, preservation and storage
