Raw material quality defects caused by the fishing gear or improper bleeding of the fish onboard the fishing vessels are frequent problems within the fish processing industry. This survey in Lofoten, Vesterålen and Finnmark mars – may 2004 documents the frequency of eight categories of quality defects on fresh cod at landing, caught by gillnet, longline, danish seine or hand-line. Highest frequency of quality defects caused by the fishing operation was found on net caught cod, and lowest on cod caught by hand-line.
