Description Smoked fish has high consumer demand over salted dried fish and have much potential to develop as small and medium scale industry in Sri Lanka. But, scientific surveys have found that quality of smoked fish products are not in acceptable level. Therefore, improvements in the processing methods of smoked fish are required in order to prevent contamination with unacceptable levels Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH) which are carcinogenic. Due to above reasons, National Engineering Research & Development (NERD) Centre in collaboration with National Aquatic Resources Research and Development Agency (NARA) has developed a smoked fish processing unit to minimize Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon (PAH) contaminations of smoked fish at safe levels.
