MS204 Tropical Seafood I B L


Prerequisites: : Any 100 level MS course :
Course Coordinator: Dr Khairul Azam

This course provides a general introduction to seafood in Pacific Island Countries. Seafood resources, nutrition, spoilage, poisoning, handling, processing (both traditional and modern), preservation and quality assurance are examined. This includes a critical analysis of the role of women in traditional and modern fish processing industries. Regional and global seafood quality issues are examined in some detail and students are expected to design their own seafood business using economic engineering principles. The course requires a low level of applied science and technology; the emphasis will be on field-trips and assignments rather than on laboratory classes.
