- Up to this point in feed production great care has been taken in the manufacturing
and materials handling of aquafeeds. Similar care must be taken in the warehousing
and shipment of the final product.
- Sacked feeds must be stored in the warehouse off the ground on pallets
away from sunlight with approximately one third of a meter between pallets
to assure good air circulation.
- Storage should always be on a first-in, first-out basis.
- Storage of finished feeds must be carried out with the protection of the
target species and human health as primary considerations. By meeting these
objectives the feed miller should insure customer satisfaction.
- Shipping and distribution records should be maintained to facilitate recall
of specific production batches/runs to the mill if and when an error occurs
in processing. (See Appendix I, Outline of Procedure for a Product Recall.)
- Bulk feed shipping documents should identify contents of each compartment
in a truck or shipping container.
- All bagged products which are shipped should be in good condition (no ripped
or otherwise leaking bags). All products sold and shipped should be properly
weighed, and a copy of the shipping/billing order should accompany them.
- Bulk feed delivery trucks carrying medicated feeds should be appropriately
flushed or sequenced, to assure that subsequent deliveries are not contaminated
with unauthorised or detrimental chemicals, which could adversely affect other
