Fish Fat / Freshness Meters for Trading Standards

Had a recent discussion with a colleague regarding the uses of the fish fat and freshness meter (  They had recently been having a discussion with a field agent for the food standards agency.

The fish fat meters are ideal for agents heading into factories/supermarkets etc and wanting to quickly see in real time the content of fat being processed or sold.  The fish freshness meter would allow agents to test how fresh the fish is and which they can then use to sign off or take matters further.

It has also been seen that in some cases there has been a dispute between the buyer and reseller of fish stock so the fat meter allows an indiscriminate third party to evaluate the stock.

Quality control is just one of the facets of the use of the meters.
