Description:

Fresh vs. Frozen Seafood? Consumer Perceptions and Preferences

Friday, February 16, 2018
6–8 p.m.

International Living-Learning Center
Oregon State University
1701 Southwest Western Boulevard
Corvallis, OR 97333

TASTE FOR YOURSELF!
Ann Colonna, Sensory Program Manager with OSU's Food Innovation Center, will lead attendees through a taste test and talk that will help you determine what you prefer: fresh versus frozen seafood.

Ms. Colonna will discuss how seafood quality is critical to the marketability and safety of the product. Consumers generally accept that fresh seafood is of good quality, while frozen seafood has been met with consumer resistance due to a perception of poor quality. This resistance creates a market barrier for many small boat fishermen who need to freeze product to accumulate sufficient supply to keep their businesses viable.

As an added bonus, you will also get a chance to taste dulse - the seaweed that "tastes like bacon" when cooked!

This event is free and open to the public but registration is required. To register, please visit bit.ly/seafoodtasting. This is a seated tasting so your prompt arrival is mandatory due to food preparation and service.

For event questions or accommodation requests, please contact Shelly Signs, (541)737-0724 or shelly.signs@oregonstate.edu.

This event is part of the OSU150 Sea Grant Festival. For a full schedule of activities, visit osu150.org.
