Seafood Processing Industry Loss of Business Information

The BP oil leak has been a top news story since the initial explosion and a lot of attention has been paid to the fisherman who are now unemployed. However, another huge part of the fishing and seafood industry is the processing. Seafood processing is the process by which fish and other seafood gets from the boats to the grocery stores and restaurants. The processing facilities along the Gulf Coast, including those in states not directly affect by the oil spill, such as Texas, are facing huge losses in business due to the closing of fishing grounds and potential contamination. Louisiana alone produces 20 to 25 percent of the total domestic seafood in the lower 48 states and 75 percent of all seafood harvested in the northern Gulf of Mexico. All the seafood harvested has to be processed before it can be shipped across the country for consumption.

There are many different parts of seafood processing, including:

  • sorting
  • dressing
  • cutting
  • eviscerating
  • skinning
  • pre-cooking
  • breading
  • spicing
  • blanching
  • filleting
  • salting
  • packing

All of the men and women who work at fish and seafood processing plants are now in danger of losing hours, if not their jobs.
