Achievements / Post - Harvest Technology / Development of Processed Fish Products & By - Products
a. Frozen Products

Procedure for bulk handling of shrimp, development of peeled and frozen shrimp products, hygienic proteins and quality control for shrimp production was introduced. Necessary technological support and consultancy was offered till the shrimp processing industry got stabilized.
With the location of rich grounds for deep-sea lobster in 1967, procedure for its processing and packaging for export was standardised.

Cuttle fish processing was commenced in 1973-74 and procedures were evolved for its packaging and export.

Procedures for finfish processing developed included block frozen and Individual Quick Frying round fish, fish steaks, fish fillets, fish fritters and minced fish meat. Processed products such as perch, cat fish, scienids, pink perch, barracuda, sardine, mackerel, tuna, horse mackerel, ribbon fish, lizard fish etc. were marketed by the Project.

b. Dried Products

A hygienic salted and dried product from common and uncommon varieties of fishes in small packets at prices affordable to the consumer was introduced for the first time in India. Dried products from shark, mackerel, pink perch, anchovies, silver bellies etc. found very good acceptance, especially in land locked areas.

b. Smoked and Canned Products

Smoked and canned oyster and mussels and cooked and canned tuna, marlin, mackerel and sardine were initially packed in imported aluminium cans with easy open lids. The products were later on packed in indigenous tin cans by a chilling import substitution. As a next step indigenous aluminum cans were standardised and products were marketed in these cans. Various formulations for canned fish with different packing media were tested and popularised during the past two decades. The products were reached to consumers in the urban sector and large-scale users such as defense department. Trials for downward vertical integration by setting up a can reforming line is in progress.

d. Value added Products

Fish cutlets, fish burgers and canned fish balls were produced from fish mince obtained from uncommon and low value white fish. Procedures for producing pickles from fish mince, fin fish, shrimp and bivalve meat and their packaging were standardised. Fish curries in retortable pouches were developed and test marketed.

e. Fishery By - Products

Products for processing shark fin and fin rays were standardised and popularised during 1981-82. Dried unsalted fish and fish powder as feed ingredient for poultry, fish manure and fish silage were other byproducts developed in the Project’s plant. These products were found ready acceptance in the agriculture and animal husbandry sectors.
