Success Story: Cooling and Preservation Onboard
Onboard cooling and preservation
A Deepchill® system installed onboard their new vessel helped McCarthy’s enhance their operations and their bottom line.
McCarthy’s now supplies their processors with fish that’s superior in colour and condition, and delivered at ideal temperature—even after longer time at sea.
McCarthy’s can now sell their fish products to processors at a 10–15% premium.
Fishing trips have been extended by 2-3 days. This means a higher yield per trip while still maintaining a better-quality product compared to using flake ice.
With full automation and no need for labor to handle flake ice, harvesting is now much easier.
