    Hi Mahesh,

    One thing you might like to do before getting started, is to familiarise yourself with the Food Standards Code – you’ll find a lot of info on it on the Food Standards Australia New Zealand website. I know they have a specific set of standards for seafood, although I’m not familiar with them myself.

    Hope that helps,
    Jayne
