Better Seafood Processing School
The 2019 Better Seafood Processing School is a 2-day workshop related to seafood quality assurance/quality control that will be hosted at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites in Astoria, OR on May 13-14, 2019 and includes hands-on training that will be hosted at the Oregon State University Seafood Lab (Astoria, OR).
The 2019 educational objectives of the BSPS are to provide a general understanding and background of seafood quality, value and compliance as well as hands on lab training to help attendees understand the what, how, and most importantly, why variables impact seafood quality.
The target audience includes those who are new to the seafood industry, particularly QA/QC, processor/operators, technical staff, compliance and sanitation. As seafood processing involves a variety of departments and staff to work together as a team to successfully process quality seafood, those in Supervisor/Manager positions would benefit from attending as well.
The lecture sessions will highlight industry relevant topics in three categories pertaining to seafood quality: compliance, employee development, and utilization. For the lab sessions, attendees will be able to select training foci to more specifically address their educational needs. Available training sessions include: sanitization, lab equipment calibration & maintenance, bacterial testing, seafood sensory, surimi gel testing.
The expectation is that attendees who participate in the BSPS will bring value to their companies through increased awareness of seafood quality issues cause/effect, as well as understanding the impact of conducting proper quality testing and maintaining compliance. Attendees could also apply Certified Food Scientist credits.
