This unit outlines quality assurance systems and the sensory and non-sensory evaluation of seafood. Topics will include key attributes of a quality system, system requirements, product attributes and measurement. The strengths and weaknesses of some quality systems will be reviewed and their applications in the seafood industry will be demonstrated. Students will learn to apply a range of non-sensory and sensory methods of quality assessment to a wide variety of seafood products. Non-sensory methods will include microbiological, biochemical and physical analysis while sensory methods will focus on organoleptic assessment as applied to seafood.
