FISHERIES TECHNOLOGY consists of two major fields:

  • (1) - Fish Technology, which deals with handling, transporting, processing, and quality study and control of fish and fish products, from the moment of their capture till they are bought by the final customer.
  • (2)- Fishing Technology, which deals with study, design, production, and testing of fishing gear and methods, and the fishing deck arrangements and machinery on board fishing vessels. During the later decades of the 20th century, it expanded to cover fishery hydro-acoustics and other electronic systems involved with fish capture. (MB-Y)
