A Journey into High-tech Fish Processing

24.11.2016

Innovation has transformed fish processing into a high-tech industry that uses advanced systems and software to get the fish from the sea to the supermarket.

It now only takes a few hours to process the catch and distribute to customers around the world. Marel has teamed up with Matís, the Icelandic Food and Biotech R&D institute, to create a video demonstrating how cutting-edge technology makes this possible.

Marel combines its extensive knowledge of fish processing technology with heavy investment in product development to create innovative equipment, systems, and software for processing whitefish and salmon, both farmed and wild, onboard and ashore.
