Chilling, refrigerationand freezing are the major preservation methods used with seafoodand fish products, all three processes aiming to preserve thefreshness and flavour of the fish. Consumer demand for fish remainshigh despite escalating prices in the last ten years which haveseen the retail cost of the most popular breeds (cod, haddock,salmon) more than double for unfrozen fish.
