Harvest and post-harvest techniques
MetadataShow full item record
The maximum weight of fish that can be safely transported within a given period of time is the carrying capacity. The carrying capacity depends on the duration of haul, water temperature, fish size, and fish species. If water quality conditions such as temperature, oxygen, carbon dioxide, alkalinity, and ammonia are constant, then carrying capacity will depend on the fish species. In general, fewer kilograms of smaller fish can be transported per liter of water than larger fish. It is important that first time or experienced shippers handling a new species test-run a batch before undertaking a large shipment. [Extract]
