About Blast Freezing
Blast freezing is the workhorse method of freezing seafood products in the fishing industry, simply because it is the most versatile. Second behind blast freezing is plate freezing, which is the king of block frozen products. In third place is brine freezing, which is specific to products that either tolerate salt uptake, like tuna, or are enhanced by salt uptake, like crab. But for the vast majority of seafood products that rely on both taste, texture, and a visual presentation, blast freezing is the most productive and versatile investment to a frozen seafood production plant.
