Stornoway Fishermans' Co-operative Fish Processing Factory E.C. Hygiene Regulations

M.A. Myers

The Fish Processing Division of Stornoway Fishermen’s Co-operative operates from a factory building on Esplanade Quay that is leased from the council. Negotiations are currently in hand for the purchase of the factory by the Co-operative. Ground rent is payable to the Pier and Harbour Commission on whose ground the factory stands. The Fish Processing Divisions principal business is in Nephrops and Scallops, but with increasing trade in finfish. The Co-operative wish to expand their production capability and to make it more flexible and efficient to respond to raw material availability on a day to day basis, or to changes in market requirements (for products).

Visit to Irvin & Johnson Limited Trawling Division, Cape Town, South Africa

K. Arkley

In April 1992 Seafish were contacted by Rob Whitehead, Operations Manager, for Irvin & Johnson, for advice on the use of square mesh panels as means of improving selectivity in trawl gear. As a result of the initial contact a visit was made to Cape Town where my services were employed by Irvin & Johnson in an advisory capacity. I was asked to brief senior management on current research generally regarding the use of square mesh, as well as making recommendations and observations on the probable effects of square mesh on catch rates, fish quality, selectivity etc., in the South African Hake Fishery.

Raising Standards in the Port Sector Quality/Standards Audit - Newlyn

M. Myers, P. Wilson

As part of Seafish’s policy of encouraging higher standards of quality and hygiene in the ports sector, a survey of landing and sale operations was undertaken at Newlyn on the 9th and 10th August at the invitation of local interests. The following notes provide a brief record of observations with regard to the standard of existing facilities, equipment and operating practices for landing and sale. The investigation extended from the fish quays, market and dock estate but excluded merchants premises and vessels. The notes are intended to highlight any problem areas and form the basis for discussion between interested parties to raise standards where required, and to promote the Port of Newlyn.
