<p>Research will address methods to determine the presence of pathogens in catfish/catfish products and to maximize elimination methods. Detection techniques will be developed to aid in processing and packaging operations, which should further enhance product safety.</p>

<p>Specifically the objectives are:</p>

<li>Optimize safety of aquaculture products through innovative processes for reducing microbiological, physical and chemical hazards in seafood/aquaculture products.</li>
<li>Determine the mechanisms influencing microbial survival of selected pathogens in seafood/aquaculture products.</li>
<li>Optimize the market value of seafood/aquaculture products through enhanced food safety and quality.</li>
