A simple way to maintain the fish processing industry
MetadataShow full item record
This paper emphasizes that efforts in the upgrading of the fish processing industry in Southeast Asia should be directed at each country s traditional fish products. In the coming era, the increase in food production may not match the world s population growth. In this respect, the major challenge for the fish processing industry is the utilization of all fish caught. Emphasis on development of new products might be one area of responsibility. However, this paper stresses the importance of traditional fish products of each country because these products have survived many decades without any assistance from government or perhaps even society. In other words, there must be some reason for their existence. When fish technologists are able to help the traditional fish products industry, the industry will play a more powerful role in the future. This paper focuses on a simple and fast way of boosting the fish processing industry in the region by emphasizing on the upgrading of existing traditional fish products.
