Under this topic you will find the North American Industry Classification
System definition of the
Seafood Product Preparation and Packaging (NAICS 3117) industry group. You can use this

This industry group comprises establishments primarily engaged in canning seafood, including soup; smoking, salting and drying seafood; preparing fresh fish by removing heads, fins, scales, bones and entrails; shucking and packing fresh shellfish; processing marine fats and oils; and freezing seafood. Establishments known as "floating factory ships", that are engaged in shipboard processing of seafood, are included.
