Seafood Handling training videos
As part of a suite of Seafood CRC research projects interviews were conducted with around 80 chefs in Perth, Sydney and Brisbane about seafood. The overwhelming message was a lack of knowledge/information about seafood. As a result Seafood CRC developed a project to develop a series of training videos about seafood to be incorporated into the curriculum for apprentice chef/commercial cookery and hospitality students.
