This Topic Page is an Introductory guide to the Seafood Industry
An introduction to the seafood industry, from catch to cooking is potentially a vast area of study as it can encompass fisheries and food science, economics and marketing as well as the culinary arts.
The purpose of this Topic page is to identify some of the resources available from Seafish and the Seafood Training Academy to help students and others study aspects of the seafood industry. If the resources of the Seafish and Academy websites are combined with the skills and knowledge training available from Seafish approved trainers than almost every aspect of the seafood industry can be studied to a level of detail that will satisfy almost all learners.
That is the challenge. This topic page will address the first steps in taking on that challenge, but ultimately success is down to the determination and perseverance of the individual learner.
If you have a specific learning need then this webpage and the Academy website may well satisfy your need. If you would like a more guided approach then you could do worse than start with the following two occupational standards in fish and shellfish product knowledge. A review of these standards may well help you to decide where to start and what your ultimate goal is.
Principles of marine finfish product knowledge and Principles of shellfish, non marine finfish and other marine seafood products, product knowledge are two units that together cover all aspects of the seafood industry. They are not learning materials in their own right, but are more of a specification for what a learner should know and understand about fish and shellfish.
There are many more units on fish and shellfish available as part of the Level 2 or Level 3 fish and shellfish Diplomas.
Suggested way forward: Download and print off the two product knowledge standards above. Go through them and mark up the questions you would like to be able to answer. Now you know what you need to learn.
