The Mississippi Department of Marine Resources (DMR) will host a Seafood Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points (HACCP) workshop, which is free for Mississippi residents.

HACCP is a science-based program designed to ensure food safety by assisting industry members in identifying and evaluating critical points during the production, processing, handling, and distribution of seafood products.

The purpose of the HACCP course is to educate seafood dealers, processors, and employees about hazards that can be introduced in seafood and the preventive measures that are used to control these hazards. HACCP is utilized across multiple food industries worldwide to ensure food is safe for consumption by preventing, eliminating, or reducing biological, chemical, and physical hazards.

The class will be held August 6-8 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Bolton Building auditorium, located at 1141 Bayview Avenue in Biloxi.

Mississippi students, seafood industry members, and restaurant employees are encouraged to attend. Space is limited to the first 25 registrants per class.

The cost is free for Mississippi residents and $160 for out-of-state residents. All participants receive an Association of Food and Drug Officials (AFDO) certificate upon completion.

The HACCP course, developed by the AFDO and the National Seafood HACCP Alliance, fulfills the FDA’s training requirements. The course consists of the following key principles:

  • Analysis of hazards
  • Critical control points
  • Critical limits
  • Monitoring procedures for critical control points
  • Corrective actions
  • Verification procedures
  • Record keeping and documentation

For more information, contact Ralph Terry of DMR at (228)523-4095 or The workshop is made possible through funding from the Mississippi Tidelands Trust Fund Program.
