The Essentials of Salmon Processing

Efficient salmon processing is fundamental to producing high-quality products in the seafood industry. The process involves several key stages: filleting, pin bone removal, skinning, and salting. Each of these stages requires precision and care, and the right equipment can make a significant difference in the quality and efficiency of the output.

Filleting: The First Step to Quality Filleting is the initial step in salmon processing. The '6 station manual filleting line' available for sale is a notable example of equipment designed for filleting fresh fish. Manufactured in 2017, it includes an ice-melting tank and is adept at handling the delicate task of filleting, ensuring minimal waste and maximum yield. Head cutting and removal is also carried out at this stage.

Pin Bone Removal: Ensuring Texture and Convenience The next step is the removal of pin bones, which is essential for both texture and convenience. The 'Marel 2612.25 pin bone remover', 'Kaj Olesen and Baader Trio pin bone removers' are designed to extract these rib bones efficiently without damaging the delicate flesh of the salmon.
