Why use FISHFORM PLUS

FISHFORM PLUS is a unique preservative, which increases the storage time of raw material for the production of fish meal. FISHFORM PLUS can be used for all types of industrial fish and by-products. The storage time can be more than doubled.

FISHFORM PLUS restrains bacterial growth and delays the bacterial spoilage of the raw material. The result is raw material with a better quality. The increased storage time of the raw material open up for new applications and better utilization of the resources in the fish industry. Improved preservation also increases the flexibility to control storage, transportation and production.

FISHFORM PLUS keeps Total Volatile Nitrogen (TVN) low for a long time and helps you control the quality of the raw material to obtain the highest possible price at the time of landing the catch. One of the advantages of FISHFORM PLUS is the relatively high pH. The antimicrobial effect without strong acidification helps avoid protein hydrolysis and leakage of gut fill from the fish. Digesting enzymes from the gut has a low pH optimum, and preserving with strong acid at low pH may give high enzymatic activity. With FISHFORM PLUS you can avoid this problem.


Fishes on a boat

Studies have also shown increased dry matter recovery in fish catch preserved with FISHFORM PLUS. This has been demonstrated both for fish preserved “dry” and when refrigerated fresh water has been used.
Analyses have shown that dry matter in fish preserved with FISHFORM PLUS has increased from 20.3% in unpreserved fish to 22.3% in preserved fish.

Results from summer capelin fisheries show a staggering difference of 23% higher final settlement for a boat using FISHFORM PLUS compared to a boat with no preservative fishing in the same area at the same time.  This means significantly better income for the trawler.

FISHFORM PLUS has been extensively tested and can be used for all types of fish for fishmeal production, such as: Blue Whiting, Sandeel, Capelin, Norway Pout, Sprat, etc., as well as fish by-products.

FISHFORM PLUS is environmental friendly and consists only of components found in nature. FISHFORM PLUS is easy to handle e.g. compared with other organic acids such as acetic acid and formic acid. FISHFORM PLUS does not smell much per se and it significantly improves the working environment by reducing the smell of the raw material.
