Written for Alaska fishermen with direct market permits, this publication informs captains of small vessels, who process their own fish, how to prepare for a Department of Environmental Conservation inspection. Operators are advised to have paperwork in order, and to demonstrate that they follow hazard analysis and sanitation protocols. In addition, the inspection is a good opportunity to discuss health aspects of new ideas for fishing business growth, with the DEC inspector.

This is part of the Alaska Sea Gram series.

This booklet is part of the Alaska Fisheries Business Assistance Project (FishBiz), providing information and resources to Alaska's fishermen, processors, and marine-related businesses.

What others say

"During the previous two inspection seasons since this latest publication's distribution to the direct marketing fleet, I have consistently noticed a marked improvement in compliance by this group in all areas. The direct marketers, by their own admission, have and continue to use the guidance provided by your publication to make improvements to their onboard seafood processing operations, which enhances both the health and quality of their products. Additionally, these positive effects, including increased operator knowledge and resulting compliance improvement, enrich my program's effectiveness and promote a more positive 'partnership' atmosphere for all involved."—Robert Pressley, Environmental Health Officer, Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation
