Fish Cold Storage
The retention of nutritional properties and product quality of fish is dependent on proper handling of the catch after it has been harvested from its aquatic environment. Read more.
Harvested fish must be immediately stored in a low-temperature environment such as ice or refrigerated seawater. This chilling process slows the growth of microorganisms.
Of the many processing methods used to preserve fish, only freezing can maintain the flavor and quality of fresh fish. The three steps for freezing fish include immediate cooling and holding, rapid freezing and cold storage.
The rapid cooling and holding of fish at a temperature between 2 and -2°C takes immediately after the fish have been harvested.
The key to freezing is the rapid reduction of the temperature to between -2 and -7°C. This temperature range represents the zone of maximum ice crystal formation in the cells of the flesh.
Once the fish is frozen, it must be stored at a constant temperature of -23°C or below in order to maintain long shelf life and ensure quality.
