Shellfish are filter feeder animals that filter food from the mud of their habitat and are used as bioindicators of water pollution. This has an impact on food safety if it does not meet the quality standards of shellfish sanitation. To provide a sense of security to consumers is to reduce some of the hazardous materials either from biological, chemical, or physical hazards. Banjar Kemuning Village is located in Sedati District, Sidoarjo Regency, East Java has five Joint Business Groups (KUB) which are engaged in catching shellfish. Shellfish taken from the waters should be handled related to sanitation processes. One solution for processing shellfish to meet quality standards is the method of steaming shellfish based on a boiler machine. Activities include (1) counseling through face-to-face meetings and discussions, (2) demonstration plots on the application of mussel steaming technology using a steamer boiler, and (3) monitoring and evaluation of post-catch shellfish handling related to sanitation and hygiene. The application of appropriate technology with the boiler-based shellfish steaming method can increase the production and quality of shellfish products.
