This extension report will discuss the use of temperature sensors for deployment in seafood products. We will describe two types of temperature sensors—time-temperature indicators (TTIs) and time temperature data loggers—and the benefits and limitations of each. Finally, we will discuss how the seafood industry can incorporate TTIs and temperature data loggers into food safety, food quality and QA/QC programs.
