Seafish has produced a booklet for fishermen who are engaged in the capture of demersal species from fisheries around the UK and the EU.  The booklet is intended as a guide for the demersal catching sector; regarding applicable UK and EU regulations concerning food safety.  This booklet should be considered as a valuable input when working procedures are developed in the value chain of containerised Icelandic fish.
