Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Preservation and Processing of Fish.

asked the Minister for Agriculture if his Department intends to carry out any research work into the preservation and processing of fish, particularly into the preservation, by way of quick-freezing, of mackerel and herrings.

The answer is in the negative. I understand that the Sea Fisheries Association contemplates some experiments on a limited scale in regard to methods of processing evolved elsewhere, which appear to be showing satisfactory results.
