    A Report on the Packaging of Gigas Oysters

    During the present century, consumption of oysters has declined acutely. They have been known in Britain since pre-Roman times, and whereas in Victorian times they were the food of the poor, they are now a scarce, expensive luxury. Yet they breed prolifically. Now the White Fish Authority plan to promote the cultivation of the gigas oyster in a number of oyster farms around the coast, and, side by side with growing, they are setting up a marketing operation to encourage the wider use of oysters by caterers and domestically. One prerequisite is effective, inexpensive packaging. We have, therefore, consulted growers and caterers (see appendix) about their views. Our conclusions on the packaging of both shucked and processed oyster meats will, we believe, be found acceptable to growers and caterers.

    Deep Water Fishing Voyage, MT 'Luneda', Feb 74

    The wet fish stern trawler LUNEDA (J. Marr and Sons, Fleetwood) was chartered by the White fish authority on behalf of the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food for a 14 day voyage in February 1974. The purpose of the voyage was to make a start upon the assessment of the commercial viability of the stocks of deep water fish, especially grenadiers, which had been found in depths between 400 and 700 fathoms in surveys in 1973. During the voyage only 8 days fishing were possible because of bad weather conditions but the vessel nevertheless landed 680, ten stone kits of various species. The proportion of grenadiers landed (27% of the catch) was lower than anticipated from the earlier surveys but this was more than compensated for by a high catch (329 kits) of blue ling, which was not expected at these depths in these quantities. This report has been produced from a scanned original and may therefore contain some formatting and other inaccuracies. In cases where this affects the technical content, a paper copy of the original report can still be obtained from Seafish.
