Other Media | WorldFishing: Optimar focuses on fish health with new range of products

Friday, November 19, 2021

Optimar has launched a range of sustainable solutions aimed at ensuring fish welfare and keeping produce as fresh as possible.

The Norwegian company, which has branches in Romania, Spain and north-west US, has unveiled a new blast freezer, new ‘stun and bleed’ solution and a monitor that uses sonar to analyse fish health and optimise conditions.

The Optiblast freezer was developed in response to increasing volumes of air-freighted produce. Its automated feeding system gives fast loading/unloading, meaning fish is frozen as quickly as possible whilst multiple trays and a lift system ensures each product is in the correct place.

It’s an ambitious venture into some very new territory, and the outline is for the new Loran to be powered by two 185kW fuel cells fed with hydrogen from containers on board, plus a 2000 kWh battery –although conventional diesel engines are still part of the energy package needed to keep Loran at sea for trips of 4-6 weeks.

Thursday, November 18, 2021

The year 2021 will be the year of the octopus on the coast of the Bay of Biscay. The species, which is usually landed in small numbers, has been ubiquitous since spring and becomes an important species for businesses and auctions off the coast.

Since spring, the species has proliferated in the waters of southern Brittany, the Loire-Atlantic and the Vendée, as shown by the current landings: «We have returned to a level of about 3 tons per day, but we have seen peaks of up to 9 tons », Says Sylvain Ravon, director of the Sables-d'Olonne fish market.
