Following a brief account of the fishery industry of Thailand, describing the fishery resources and the utilization of the fish landed, details are given of the fish processing sector. Cold storage and freezing facilities, canneries, processing of traditional products and pre-processing, and fishmeal plants are described. The export of fishery products is also discussed, considering the tuna, cephalopod, shrimp, canned shrimp, canned crabmeat and clam and dried fish. Problems facing the industry include shortage of raw material, quality of fish and fishery products, technology and rejection of Thai fish exports.
