Improving Farmed Fish Quality and Safety Book Review:

Global aquaculture production has grown rapidly over the last 50 years. It is generally accepted that there is limited potential to increase traditional fisheries since most fish stocks are well or fully exploited. Consequently increased aquaculture production is required in order to maintain global per capita fish consumption at the present level. Fish farming enables greater control of product quality and safety, and presents the possibility of tailoring products according to consumer demands. This important collection reviews safety and quality issues in farmed fish and presents methods to improve product characteristics. The first part of the book focuses on chemical contaminants, chemical use in aquaculture and farmed fish safety. After an opening chapter discussing the risks and benefits of consumption of farmed fish, subsequent contributions consider environmental contaminants, pesticides, drug use and antibiotic resistance in aquaculture. Part two addresses important quality issues, such as selective breeding to improve flesh quality, the effects of dietary factors including alternative lipids and proteins sources on eating quality, microbial safety of farmed products, parasites, flesh colouration and off-flavours. Welfare issues and the ethical quality of farmed products are also covered. The final part discusses ways of managing of product quality, with chapters on HACCP, monitoring and surveillance, authenticity and product labelling. With its distinguished editor and international team of contributors, Improving farmed fish quality and safety is a standard reference for aquaculture industry professionals and academics in the field. Reviews safety and quality issues in farmed fish and presents methods to improve product characteristics Discusses contaminants, persistent organic pollutants and veterinary drug residues and methods for their reduction and control Addresses important quality issues, genetic control of flesh characteristics and the effects of feed on product nutritional and sensory quality

Quality of fish from catch to consumer Book Review:

In this book, for the first time, scientists from various disciplines and all partners in the fishery chain address the important issues of quality labelling, monitoring and traceability of fish. The complexity of the European fishery sector, the attitudes towards quality labelling GMP and the needs for quality information are presented. The progress of implementing traceability (schemes) from catch to consumer is covered. Fishermen give their view on GMP on board of their vessels. New tools for measuring the quality of the catch and the experience with quality grading of the landed fish by QIM are described. Attention is paid to recent developments of E-commerce of fish via the auctions. The possibilities of combining various instrumental methods for measuring fish quality are highlighted. A range of contributions on labelling systems, industrial standards, awards and certification procedures for the quality of fish are included. An overview on consumer research on fish in Europe is presented. In addition papers are covering consumer's responses to fresh fish, the evaluation of a promotion campaign for seafood consumption and consumer's opinions towards farmed fish, health and food safety. The implications of quality labels for the consumers and the influence on their buying decision process are addressed. Two papers discussing labelling, price and packaging as value indicators and the product differentiation for shellfish complete the book.

Fish Welfare Book Review:

Fish have the same stress response and powers of nociception as mammals. Their behavioural responses to a variety of situations suggest a considerable ability for higher level neural processing – a level of consciousness equivalent perhaps to that attributed to mammals. Each chapter of this book has been written by specialists in their field. The subject matter is wide ranging and covers in detail concepts of animal welfare in addition to more specific aspects of fish welfare. Philosophical concepts of welfare are discussed along with more practical areas of fish welfare encompassing all husbandry and management activities that have a potential to affect the welfare of the fish in our care. This book is an essential purchase for fish veterinarians, fish farmers, fish biologists and those involved in the aquaculture industry and its regulation.
