Major Fields of Interest:
The department carries out research and development within handling, storage, preservation and other industrial uses of fish. The focus areas are microbiology and hygiene, raw material and product technology, and production and process analysis. The research within the area microbiology and hygiene focus on microbial ecology; occurrence, survival, growth and interaction of micro-organisms in fish products. The properties of fish and shellfish, and their use as well as product composition and product quality, are central topics within the research area raw material and product technology. A wide variety of research is carried out within the areas of lipid, protein and enzyme chemistry to establish basic knowledge for product storage and development. Research within production and process analysis is primarily focused on catch handling, measurement methods and systems for documentation and quality management.
