EXPERTS INVESTIGATE SOMETHING FISHY

 

A Grimsby research project into food quality is resulting in overseas exchanges for the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside.

 

Prof Tony Taylor and Dr Ceso Alasalavar from ULH’s Food Research Centre visited Szarvas in Hungary for an annual meeting of the European Union’s Copernicus group.

 

The group are currently engaged in a programme to examine the quality of fresh and seawater fish.

 

A researcher from the Fish Culture Research Institute in Szarvas, which hosted the meeting, has now arrived at the FRC in Grimsby for a two-week visit to acquire new lab techniques.

 

Peter Lengyel will also receive training in taste testing to assess the quality of sea bass which he will use to assist the Fish Quality Project in Hungary.

 

The Copernicus project partners include Britain, Hungary, Moldova and Greece.
