In Modified Atmospheric Processing and Packaging of Fish: Filtered Smokes, Carbon Monoxide, and Reduced Oxygen Packaging, experts from industry, academia, and agencies discuss the technology, commercial practices, and pertinent regulations of these fish processing applications, providing the most current and complete information on the topics available anywhere. Coverage of major seafood technology applications includes discussion of practices that are new, controversial, and rapidly expanding in production and markets throughout the world. Methods of application, shelf life, color enhancement, technical aspects, product quality, regulatory issues, microbial consequences, food safety concerns, and product assessments are fully addressed. Modified Atmospheric Processing and Packaging of Fish is the benchmark resource for the practice, science, and regulation of the most popular processing and packaging methods for fresh and frozen seafood worldwide.
