Abstract or Summary
  • Shrimp gradually has become a significant portion of seafood in Oregon during the last two decades. The attention is attracted to the economic, technology, and efficiency of resource management, harvesting, processing, and marketing. This thesis is a study of the path of Pacific pink shrimp, Pandalus Jordani, from the ocean, through harvesting and processing, to the cold storage of seafood processing plants. Major concerns of this study are the costs and benefits of shrimp processing machinery, processing methods, and management of all resources related to the complete processing system. Cause-and-effect diagrams, economic analyses, unit-time process charts, control charts, and resource planning and management (RPM) models are illustrated. Both major and auxiliary equipment are illustrated by pictures and evaluated by cost-benefit curves and tables. The economic effects are clearly defined by decision-table steps which show alternate break-even points dependent upon each processor's data base. In addition to economic criteria concerning present operations, cause-and-effect diagrams with alternate resultant RPM models can be used for more effective long range decisions. Important pertinent details and their future profit and quality effects can be identified by predicted productivity differences from unit-time flow charts, quality control measures, training performances and the differentials between initial raw shrimp costs and the final shrimp meat product selling prices.
