The Good Practice Guide to Handling and Storing Live Crustacea

Seafish has an ongoing programme to produce good manufacturing practice guidelines (GMP) for the fishing and related industries. These GMP guidelines have been produced for commercial operatives engaged in handling and storing live crustacea within the United Kingdom. They aim to help businesses achieve high standards of operation by encouraging practices that ensure product safety, product quality, and efficient use of resources. The advice has been produced in collaboration with the industry and appropriate regulators. The guidelines are relevant to sectors that handle live crustacea from capture to the point of dispatch (primary producers). They cover activities aboard vessels, at live holding premises ashore and during ‘vivier’ transportation.
