Fishing, sorting, processing and markets for mackerel caught by pelagic vessels. Analysis of grading and classification properties / Fishing, grading, pre ‐ processing, processing and marketing of mackerel products catches by pelagic vessels. Analyzing samples and grading trait
The aim of this project is to study the fishing of pelagic fishing vessels for mackerel in Icelandic waters, make formal measurements, come up with solutions on how to sort the mackerel from other fish on board and how to process it in freezer vessels. The equipment options necessary for the processing will be analyzed, and markets for mackerel caught in Icelandic waters will also be explored according to the seasons. In this section, the collection and analysis of mackerel samples collected in the summers of 2008 and 2009 was reported. Classification properties were also discussed.
The objective of this project is to examine mackerel fishing on Icelandic fishing grounds, perform geometrician measurements, find the best solution for grading the mackerel by size and species on board and how to process it in freezer vessels. Analyze what kind of technology is necessary. Moreover, to examine the markets for mackerel caught on Icelandic fishing grounds during the summer. In this part conclusion are present after the collecting and analysis of samples during summers 2008 and 2009. Also, some conclusions are about grading properties.
