Super-Chilling Fish

The super-chilling project has been in development for some time; for the last few years, the food processing solution company Skaginn 3X, in collaboration with representatives from Fisk Seafood, have been considering the possibility of super-chilling whole whitefish.

Later, the two companies collaborated with Matís, a government owned research company in Iceland, on the subject. The aim was to investigate whether super-chilling was possible and what the effect would be on quality and production. Super-chilling means cooling a whole fish down to below zero degrees Celsius immediately after it has been caught/slaughtered; in traditional cooling methods, the fish is chilled with ice to around 0-4 degrees Celsius.
