Do You Know:

Fresh fish is a highly perishable food product It can be kept unpreserved for only a short time.

For short term preservation, fresh fish are filleted and displayed for sale on a bed of crushed ice or refrigerated.

Long term preservation of fish is done in a variety of ways. The oldest and still most widely used techniques are drying and salting. Fish such as salmon, tuna and herring are cooked and canned.

Parasites in fish are a natural occurrence and common. Parasites are a concern when consumers eat raw or lightly preserved fish such as sashimi, sushi. It is important for consumers to be aware of the risk of eating lightly preserved fish.. To kill parasites raw fish should be frozen to an internal temperature of −20°C (−4°F) for at least 7 days. It is important to note that home freezers may not be cold enough to kill parasites
