"This wide-ranging book covers a myriad of topics on how enzymes are important to improve uses of seafood raw materials. . ..These discussions of the special roles of seafood enzymes in post mortem fish metabolism and the quality changes they effect are critical pieces of knowledge in achieving the goal of obtaining maximum value from the species available. The goal must be achieved consistent with responsible use of a resource which we have a strong obligation to use wisely so future generations may also enjoy its benefits. "
---Herbert O. Hultin, Department of Food Science Marine Foods Laboratory, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
