Abstract: Processing trials of surf redfish (Actinopyga mauritiana) beche-de-mer collected from the outer reef flat and slope of Rarotonga, have shown the finished dried product of marketable size (at least 50g, 10 cm, Grade 5) to be about 7% of its original wet weight and about 44% of its original length. Because of this, 14kg we weight, between 10-20 individuals weighing 700g to 1.4kg each, are needed to produce 1kg of marketable dried beche-de-mer.
