Spectrophotometric colour readings are taken at 475 nm. The colour level is also assessed through visual Salmofan measurements. We can conduct analysis of NQC section specimens at individual or aggregate specimen level (5-10 fish).

The methodology used to determine fat content can also be used for other types of fish, such as mackerel and herring. This is an unaccredited method.
