Sanitation Control Procedures (SCP) for Fish and Fishery Products
Jan 22 @ 8:30 am – 4:45 pm

The Sanitation Control Procedures training is intended to assist the seafood industry in developing and implementing “Sanitation Control Procedures” as mandated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This regulation is commonly know as the “Seafood HACCP Regulation” which became effective December 18, 1997. Since this date, seafood processors have been required to ‘monitor’ sanitary control procedures used during processing in order to show their compliance with good sanitary conditions and practices.

The School of Nutrition and Food Sciences offers a one day Sanitation Control Procedures for Processing Fish and Fishery Products (SCP) training designed to educate seafood processors, packers, wholesales, importers, harvesters and warehouses about sanitation procedures. Participants who complete the course receive a certificate issued by AFDO, that fulfills the FDA requirements for seafood SCP training.

Louisiana Sea Grant  will host the Coastal Connections competition at Louisiana State University on Friday, March 15, 2019 at 11:30 a.m.in Dalton J. Woods Auditorium in the Energy, Coast & Environment Building.  The competition, modified from the Three Minute Thesis (3MT™) approach to research communication, was an exercise in developing academic, presentation and research communication skills while supporting the development of students’ capacities to effectively explain their research. Graduate students have three minutes to present a compelling oration on their research topic and its significance using two slides. Coastal Connections focuses on the ability of students to consolidate their ideas and crystallize their research discoveries.
