    FISH, SEA FOODS & PROCESSED MARINE PRODUCTS

    With Fish being the most important source of lean non-vegetable protein, demand for fish, seafood and other marine products has been growing steadily with Inland aquaculture catering to a large part of the demand. Both marine and inland product catches have been the subject of intense scrutiny with respect to the safety factor.

    EFRAC‘s comprehensive testing and analytics portfolio covers DNA-based fish species determination plus all parameters for checking the quality and safety of fish and aquacultural products. At EFRAC, we have a separate pathogen handling bio-safety room equipped with biosafety cabinets of ISO class 5 to deal with pathogens like E. coli, Vibrio, Streptococcus, Staphylococcus, and so on.
