In the electronic quality manual, the quality of pelagic fish is defined. The manual is intended as a means of helping the entire pelagic industry in Norway to ensure a unified quality assessment of raw material at every stage (capture, receipt, transportation, marketing).

The images and text used are compiled through the projects' Pelagic quality - from ocean to plate "and FHF project" Individual-based quality grading and quality marking of pelagic fish "unless otherwise specified.
