Good Manufacturing Practice

We have a series of guides to help fishermen maintain the quality of their catch.

Catching, handling and storing seafood with care can maximise the quality and potentially the value of seafood, making fishing operations more profitable and products more desirable to buyers.

All species of seafood have specific requirements when it comes to handling and storage, which is why we have tailored Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) guides for use by fishermen.

The guides offer clear information on handling and storing the catch, and can be downloaded at the bottom of this page.

The following Good Manufacturing Practice guides are available:

GMP Guide for Nephrops Fishermen

UK Scallop Industry Good Practice Guide
