Trend of SURIMI Raw Materials in the Southeast Asia
MetadataShow full item record
Threadfin bream (Nemipterus spp.) Lizard fish (Saurida spp.) Bigeye (Priacanthus spp.) Croaker (Johnius spp., Pennahia spp.) and Goatfish or Red mullet (Upeneus spp., Parapeneus spp.) are economically important demersal fishes distributed from the coastal area to the continental shelf slope in the Southeast Asian Region. These species are commonly used as raw materials for Surimi manufacture in the region. In 2005 SEAFDEC/Training Department has initially conducted an activity on information collection of economically important species as Surimi raw materials under the Japanese Trust Fund project: Development of Demersal Fishery Resources Living in Un-trawlable Fishing Ground in the Southeast Asia waters. The pre-analysis on the status of Surimi Industry collected in the Southeast Asian countries established linkage between demand of raw materials (Surimi industry) and demersal resources as the supplier. For this reason, it is important to understand the status of demersal resources as surimi raw materials and search for new fishery resources existing in the region.
