It gives receiving procedures and sampling plans, and tells how to conduct simple, fair tests on products. It also tells clearly and in detail what quality points to look for with a wide range of seafood products, from live shellfish to frozen coated portions. Especially useful is the chapter on substitutions that tells how to determine whether other products are being passed off as more expensive items. More than 100 photographs and drawings illustrate critical distinctions and make it easier to conduct accurate assessments. Simple methods are provided for checking and testing for short weight, inferior size and quality, and fraudulent delivery whether deliberate or accidental. This definitive guide will enable the reader to avoid the expense of indifferent or disputed product quality. This book should be of interest to restaurant and seafood buyers- chefs, managers of restaurants- supermarket seafood buyers- seafood wholesalers.
