The quality and safety of aquatic products has always been the first priority in food quality control in China. The Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) is recognized as an effective system designed to improve food safety. To promote the establishment and implementation of the HACCP system in the aquaculture industry in China, the paper analyzed potential hazards in the cage aquaculture of Siniperca scherzei and defined the critical control point. Meanwhile, the table of HACCP plan was established.


Key words: Hazard analysis and critical control points (HACCP), cage culture, Siniperca scherzei, quality.
