Listeria is among the most serious microbial challenges for the salmon industry. The aim of the current project was to provide the salmon processing industry with increased knowledge and an improved basis to obtain enhanced control of listeria in the salmon industry. The project was anchored in the R&D strategy of the Norwegian Research Seafood Fund on seafood quality. The project has included methods for listeria sampling, identification of listeria sources and source tracking, and measures for increased control of listeria in the salmon processing industry. A guideline was prepared as a tool for the salmon industry to obtain increased control of listeria in processing plants. The salmon processing industry has been active partners in the project and provided valuable results and inputs to the project. The project has pointed out specific and general challenges for processing plants and the industry and provided a basis for targeted and risk-based strategies to obtain enhanced control of listeria in the salmon processing industry.
