New method predicts the shelf life of oily fish

A scientific team at the Instituto de Investigaciones Marinas de Vigo has developed a methodology to predict the shelf-life of oily fish. The new method can be applied shortly after fish have been caught and before it is processed or frozen. It will optimize the use of fish catches, which is essential now that global stocks are becoming smaller.
