Abstract

Fish is a very important food because its high nutritional value. Fish consumption is largely recommended in all countries so quality and safety of seafood are becoming of great concern.Especially in Mediterranean sea, where many pollutants, as metals and Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs), are often relieved also in high concentrations, seafood safety has to be checked by a methodologically rigorous risk assessment. So we propose in this paper a stages-risk assessment methodology to estimate the seafood potential risk for human health and point-out critical topics in order to support fish advisories.
