Systems of producing food in safer ways, including the use of the hazard analysis critical control point (HACCP) system are now being adopted widely throughout the world. The ever-growing global shrimp and prawn farming and processing industries are now beginning to realise the benefits of using HACCP and other food safety measures. However, until now, there has not been one single book bringing together full details of how to implement these systems, which are now seens as making an extremely important contribution to the safe production and processing of shrimps. <br><p>The authors of this book, who have a great deal of practical experience working with industry, and teaching food safety issues, have drawn together a wealth of information and guidance for the proper implementation of food safety measures, and the consequent processing of shrimps safely for the expanding market. Included in the book is an introduction to HACCP, how to implement sanitation programs and HACCP plans, and details of sampling procedures and monitoring plans for organoleptic, physical, chemical and microbiological quality. <br><p><i>Food Safety in Shrimp Processing</i> is an essential purchase for all those involved in producing and processing shrimps throughout the world. Food scientists, micribiologists and technologists in the seafood processing industry, and government regulatory and public health personnel should have a copy of this book readily at hand. All libraries in universities, colleges and research establishments where food sciences, food technology and aquaculture are studied and taught should have copies of this book on their shelves.
This volume follows a Specialized Symposium on "Mantle denudation in slow spreading ridges and in ophiolites", held at the XII EUG Meeting in Strasbourg, spring 1993. During the meeting it was felt that the contribuÂ tions to the Symposium justified a volume presenting its main scientific achievements. The present title of the volume shows that the center of interÂ est has slightly shifted with respect to the initial objective: in order to underÂ stand the processes involved in accretion taking place at oceanic ridges, it is crucial to study the interaction between uppermost mantle and lower crust. The approach favored here is that of petrological and structural analysis of oceanic rocks in present-day oceanic ridges combined with similar studies in ophiolites. Rock specimen collected by submersibles or dredge hauls in oceanic ridge environments provide a "ground truth". However, except for areas such as the MARK (Mid-Atlantic Ridge ne ar Kane fracture zone) where, thanks to multiple submersible dives, the local geology is known with aprecision even better than in many onshore ophiolites, mutual relaÂ tionships between uppermost mantle and lower crust are poorly known. In contrast, onshore ophiolites provide a necessary large-scale picture built up over many years of structural and petrological mapping.
The downside to the digital revolution is that it has thrown up new technical challenges that both experienced shooters and novices need to master: not only white balance, memory and digital formats, but also unfamiliar features such as predictive autofocus, multi-pattern metering and programmed exposure. Many photographers find themselves baffled by the plethora of options they now face when shooting, and retreat to their cameras default settings and pre-sets; but this not only compromises your results, it also takes all the fun out of successfully composing and capturing the perfect shot. Now, for the first time, expert advice on practical and aesthetic questions is available in the kind of book which anyone can pack with their camera, without worrying about size, weight or cost. Are you still baffled by your cameras shooting modes? Do you find that your pictures are poorly exposed? Do you aspire to shoot beautiful black and white images? All the expert advice you need, on the questions you want answered, is now accessible portable, practical and affordable: "The Camera Bag Companions".
