Stores (cold & dry) for seafood

Stand-alone operators who store seafood before it is exported meet specific requirements depending on the market.

The cold and dry storage of animal products is classified as secondary processing under the Animal Products Act 1999.

General information about requirements for Stores (cold & dry) and the Code of Practice (COP) relating to them can be found in the Stores (cold & dry) section of the website.

Temperature control of stored seafood

The requirements for fish and shellfish are the same as for other animal products, except for some specific temperature requirements for storing seafood. These are described in the COP for cold and dry stores.
