Where are the krill caught
What kind of route is it carried?
Our main krill fishing grounds are around South Georgia and the South Orkney Islands, located between the Antarctic Peninsula and South America.Krill caught in trawl nets are processed and frozen before being shipped to Japan.
Krill fishing can be done every year, but it is usually done from February to September.From the viewpoint of resource conservation, we started operations in March and rounded up fishing from July to August.
Krill capture is under international control.
Since fishing is done in the cold season, it is often snowy on the boat.
Krill is caught in this way
The trawler that captures krill has a processing factory and a freezer for storage.Krill has a high autolysis ability and begins to deteriorate as soon as it is put on a ship, so it is quickly processed and frozen to prevent deterioration.
Immediately after catching krill, we proceed to the next process.Freshness management is important
In addition to the staff who catch krill, the crew members required for each process and operation will be on board.
(Some ships have more than 120 people).At our company, we have an "inspector" from Japan on board to capture, process,
and even freeze krill. Fishing will continue until the transport ship to Japan is full
Krill captured in the Southern Ocean from autumn to winter.We do everything from processing to packaging and bring it to Japan.
How is it stored in Japan?
We store it in a huge freezer.The inside of the refrigerator is kept at -25 ℃,
You can store krill in good condition for a long time.
