The market for value added seafood is booming with record growth in 2003 and further growth expected in 2004. The demand for seafood is growing, encouraged by increasing awareness of its health benefits and availability of value added products. However, many consumers still find the raw product off putting and difficult to prepare - the challenge for manufacturers and retailers is to expand the market by developing new products that provide high quality, convenient and nutritious meal time solutions.
