Of course the above attachments are for your guidance only and you will need working knowledge of local regulations. For your process, appendix 4 specifically addresses max % water phase salt (e.g. L. Mono max 10%)

Seafood HACCP is pretty straightforward in the creation of HA for HACCP Plans. Have you participated in the AFDO Certificate training?

You need the species and processing Hazards before you can start the review. 

Also to add to the above, finished product storage is a hazard of concern, especially for ROP or Scombroid species.
