Feedback from one of our customers about the Optimar Electric Stunner
“We are very happy to work with this machine. We use it for the processing of our Claresse (catfish) from our own farm. Compared to other methods like on ice or bleeding to death this is the perfect way for us to process. Because the fish experiences no stress which results in a better fish meat quality (just like meat). Also the process is fast and much cheaper then, for example, ice. Less labor and ice costs.
It makes no sense for us to put a lot of effort and love into farming the fish a good and sustainable way and then at the end, process the fish in a wrong way. With this stunning there is no stress = good quality”.
Frank Foolen, Claresse Visverwerking B.V.
“We are proud to be the first company to have established humane slaughter on seabass and seabream in Turkey. We hope this will set an example to the fish farming industry that it’s possible to humanely slaughter seabass and seabream. Electrical stunning has improved the fish welfare but also improved product quality and shelf life. It has also facilitated the slaughter operation, especially during rough sea conditions.”
