Freezing of standard fish blocks has been common for almost 40 years on shore as well as on board trawlers operating in North Atlantic waters.
Now a days freezing of this type of blocks is widely used in other waters, too.
To produce a perfect STANDARD fish block the following parameters have to be observed:
•The use of correct and high-quality raw material
•The dimensions and weight of the fish blocks,
•The dimensions and strength of the freezing frames,
•The quality of the cartons,
•The capacity of the freezing plant and the plate freezer design,
•The handling of the fish blocks prior to freezing,
•The storage of frozen products.
