Summary

In recent years, increased interest has been shown in the Queensland beche-de-mer industry. As a consequence, there has been a number of initiatives taken to ensure the industry will have a sustainable future. The industry, traditionally a 'cottage' industry in the past, has not been able to access many of the practices employed in 'main stream' food manufacturing operations. However, with the adoption of modern technology and modern processing establishments coming on line, the industry is joining the 'main stream' of food processing.

With the use of modern equipment and the high capital outlay, it is important to produce products of as high a quality as possible and maximise returns. This publication endeavours to cover issues which are relevant to the modernization of this industry. By increasing awareness of factors influencing processing and product quality, it is hoped the Queensland beche-de-mer industry will establish a sustained future and reputation as a supplier of high quality products.
