The advantage of meltage tests is that K can be obtained experimentally from the slope of straight lines, as appears in Figure 7. In the case of the straight lines appearing in Figure 7. It is clear that under tropical conditions it will be practically impossible to handle fish in ice properly utilizing only non-insulated boxes, and that insulated containers will be needed, even if additional mechanical refrigeration is used.
The total amount of ice needed will be the result of adding mi see Equations 7. Under tropical conditions it may happen that, depending on the estimated t, total available volume in the box or container might not be enough even for ice to compensate for thermal losses, or the remaining volume for fish could be insufficient to make the chilling operation attractive.
In such cases it might be feasible to introduce one or more re-icing steps, or to resort to additional mechanical refrigeration see Figure 7. In practice, an indication of when re-icing is needed would be given to foremen or people in charge.
An analytical approach to this problem in connection with the estimation of the right ice-to-fish ratio in insulated containers can be found in Lupin b. Ice consumption in the shade and in the sun An important consideration, particularly in tropical countries, is the increased ice consumption in boxes and insulated containers when exposed to the sun.
The plastic box in the shade is the same plastic box of Figure 7. The correlation for the plastic box in the sun is: This considerable difference is due to the radiation effect. Depending on the surface material, type of material, colour of the surface and solar irradiation, it will be a surface radiation temperature, that is higher than dry bulb temperature.
An increase in ice consumption, even if less dramatic than in plastic boxes, can be measured in insulated containers exposed to the sun. The obvious advice in this case is to keep and handle fish boxes and containers in the shade.
This measure can be complemented by covering the boxes or containers with a wet tarpaulin. The wet tarpaulin will reduce the temperature of the air in contact with boxes and containers to the wet bulb temperature some degrees below the dry bulb temperature, depending on the Equilibrium Relative Humidity - ERH - of the airand will practically stop noticeable radiation effect since there are always radiation effects between a body and its background.
Ice consumption in stacks of boxes and containers In a stack of boxes or containers not all of them will lose ice in the same way.
Boxes or containers at the top will consume more ice than boxes and containers at the bottom, and those in the middle will consume less than either. In this system, a stack of plastic boxes were insulated by placing wooden frames, filled with polystyrene, at the top and at the bottom of the stack, and covering the whole with a case made out of canvas or oil skin.
A similar system, composed of stacks of styropor boxes, accommodated in a pallet, and covered by an insulated mat of high reflective Al surface, is used in practice for shipment of fresh fish by air e.
Results of Figure 7. The use of chill rooms drastically reduces the ice consumption in plastic boxes, avoiding the need of re-icing. In a fish handling system chilling fish with ice, mechanical refrigeration is used to reduce the ice consumption and not to chill fish.
Although analytical models of ice consumption e. However, in practice more ice should also be put in the sides of boxes and containers. Lupin The box of Figure 7. However, after a period of storage in a chill room, ice has melted, mainly on the sides, leaving some fish and parts of fish exposed to the air with a consequent rise in temperature and dehydration.
In addition, ice and fish have formed a compact mass that can produce physical damage to exposed fish when the box is moved. In chilled fish onboard fishing vessels or transported by truck, this problem may not exist if there is a continuous gentle movement which allows for ice melt water from the top to move to the sides.
However, in chill rooms or storage rooms insulated containers it would be advisable to re-ice if this problem is observed. Under tropical conditions this effect is observed, even with insulated containers, in less than 24 hours of storage.
It is difficult to find a common denominator; however, from a fish handling point of view, artisanal vessels handle relatively small amounts of fish when compared with industrial vessels and fishing journeys are usually short usually less than one day and very often only a few hours.
In general, in tropical fisheries the artisanal fleet land a variety of species, although there are examples of the use of selective fishing gear.
In temperate and cold climates artisanal fleets can focus more easily on specific species according to the period of the year; nevertheless, they may land a variety of species to respond to the market demand. Although very often artisanal fisheries are seen as an unsophisticated practice, closer scrutiny will reveal that in many cases they are passing through a process change.
There are many reasons for this process but very often the main driving forces are: This change in the scenario of artisanal fisheries is essential to understanding the fish handling problems faced by the artisanal and small sector of the fish industry, particularly in developing countries.
When the artisanal fleet was serving small villages, the amount of fish handled was very low; the customers usually bought the fish direct from the landing places, fishermen knew customers and their tastes, and fish was consumed within a few hours e.
In this situation, ice was not used, and gutting was unknown; very often fish arrived at landing places in rigor mortis depending on fish species and fishing gearand fish handling was at most reduced to covering the fish from the sun, keeping it moist and keeping off the flies.

However the specific heat capacity for water in a solid form (Ice) is only half that 2. Specific latent heat of fusion is the amount of heat absorbed or released by a substance when changing states. This could be boiling or melting.
Latent heat of fusion is the amount of energy needed to melt a substance, while latent heat of vaporisation is the amount of energy needed to boil a substance.
