Acceptability Trials with Composite Fillet Portions of Blue Whiting in Fred Fish Outlets in NW England

M. Urch

Previous trials in the fish frying trade conducted by the Market Development Unit of the White Fish Authority (WFA) with frozen block fillets of blue whiting (Refs 1, 2 and 3) have shown that although the eating quality of the fish was found to be acceptable by customers in the 30 or so outlets which participated in the trials, the major barrier to further sales was the difficulty in obtaining block fillets of a suitable size.

A description of the Hiroshima oyster culture system was published by Korringa (1976) from observations he made during 1971 to 1973. This report attempts to describe the more recent and future trends of the industry.

A Study to Forecast the Commercial Costs of Farming Turbot and Dover Sole

Not known

The 1975 equivalent report (Technical Report 130) was based on research results obtained from the White Fish Authority’s (WFA) and the Ministry of Agriculture Fisheries and Food fish cultivation programmes. At that time, because, of course, industry’s involvement was not at the commercial stage, several of the important costing parameters had to be taken from fresh water trout farming. Predictions, however, were that such schemes were viable. Since 1975 the WFA’s Research and Development Programme has largely been directed to confirming the predictions and to establishing commercially appropriate costs. During the period, commercial participation has become more active, particularly with turbot. This report has been produced from a scanned original and may therefore contain some formatting and other inaccuracies.
