Review of the previous edition:
'This book provides an invaluable starting point for personnel in the fish industry concerned with fish quality and quality control. Anyone with a serious interest in these topics should have a copy of this book Food Manufacture (on the third edition). The readableness of the book is very good, not least because of the excellent figures and photographs. Because of its wide scope, this book can be recommended to all who would deepen their knowledge.'
