included three phases: primary product processing, secondary
product development and processing, and market investigation
and introduction. All phases were successfully completed
during the course of eighteen months of effort.
Primary production of mince from frames was completed
with evaluations of the product conducted by a laboratory
and various customers. Three secondary products
were developed and evaluated through a focus group.
One final product was test marketed with in-store demonstrations
and fully developed point-of-sale material. In conclusion,
increased recovery in Alaska groundfish processing is
feasible through the use of frame mince. The contents
of this report include: A primary product production report;
product process diagram; product customer comments; quality
and stability of primary product; focus group evaluation
of three secondary products, and a market introduction
of shrimp patties.
