Quality Check
All seafood quality Check

Seafood is a perishable food. The moment it is harvested its quality is at its highest. Producers are aware of this and take measures to maintain this quality, either through storing the seafood on ice, freezing it, or keeping it alive.

The Australian Seafood Quality Index (AQI) manual is an accurate method for measuring changes in chilled seafood through the whole chain, from the point of harvest through transport, auction, distribution and sale.
