About the program

The program includes:

  • specific sanitation measures that must be undertaken and monitored regularly
  • the HACCP plan that identifies and controls potential food safety hazards related to species and processing methods

Where does Sea Grant Extension fit in?

We offer HACCP training courses for industry members so that they can meet the training requirement of the FDA regulation. Courses are offered 2-3 times per year, in conjunction with the Connecticut Department of Agriculture, Bureau of Aquaculture, the University of Rhode Island food safety specialist, and the University of Connecticut Cooperative Extension Program. Connecticut Sea Grant Extension has participated in training more than 500 members of the seafood industry from all over the Northeast.
