Why measure the color of fish?​

Fish is highly vulnerable to spoilage, which results in undesirable taste and can also interfere with safety by exposing consumers to harmful parasites, bacteria, and chemicals.

By replacing subjective human vision prone to error, instrumental color analysis provides a clear and stable assessment that ensures fish is evaluated the same way every time. HunterLab spectrophotometers' sophisticated color measurement capabilities are designed to assess fish freshness at crucial points in the supply chain, from raw products to minced, dried, cooked, or otherwise processed fish.

We help our customers sell the highest quality products and remain competitive. Companies must implement the most stringent, efficient, and accurate quality control systems in the rigorous regulatory environment surrounding the fish processing industry. Quality control failures can damage your bottom line via rework, recalls, and reputational damage. The integration of HunterLab spectrophotometers can reduce your margin of error by eliminating unreliable human factors.
