Freezing process and packaging

Our ships have the following types of freezing processes:

  1. Tunnel (Freezing by means of air circulation):
  2. Fish are usually packed in alluminium trays, or at the bottom of the boxes and then is placed into the tunnels, by means of trays, to be frozen. This process can last until 8 hours. Once the fish is frozen, it is removed from the trays and can be packaged.

  3. Cabinets (Freezing by contact)
  4. Fish are usually packed in boxes that are placed in stainless steel trays, or directly in these trays. After that, they are put inside the icy patches of the cabinet. This process last 2 or 3 hours. Once the fish is frozen, it is removed from the trays and can be packaged.
