Fish processing, one of the major areas under fisheries post-harvest sector deals with the different aspects of seafood preservation and value-addition. Processing and preservation methods range from simple icing/chilling, drying techniques to advanced technologies like freezing, retorting etc. Value-addition approaches include the development of innovative products targeting effective utilization of commercially important species as well as less utilized fishes. Identification of novel packaging materials and development of containers and methods for shelf stable fishery products and utilization of secondary raw materials for the production of high value bio potent by-products are also major and significant areas.
