QUALITY

Atlantic Fisheries recognizes food safety as one of its primary responsibilities. Our HACCP plan and execution has been reviewed by the FDA and approved. We go the extra mile to ensure the seafood we deliver is fresh, wholesome, healthy and sanitary. We use state of the art equipment such as our Ozonice 8000-PS ozone generating machine and our Safeline Powerphase Plus metal detector to ensure your not only getting the freshest seafood but also the safest.

SAFETY EQUIPMENT

Ozonice O3 ozonated water producing machine supplies ozonated water to our processing and wash down areas.

Ozonated water de-slimes, deodorizes, disinfects and cleans seafood in 2-3 seconds, leaving you with truly excellent and very appealing product.

Ozonated water (0.5 ppm+) kills virus and bacteria in seconds.

Ozonated water washing of seafood extends fresh quality 3-5 days.

Ozonated water washing (1.5 mg/L ozone) of stainless steel and food grade plastic will produce 3-4 log bacteria count reductions in 10 seconds! This is especially true for Listeria Monocytogenes.

Ozonated water washing of hands sanitizes and deodorizes the skin.

Safeline POWERPHASE PLUS metal detector

To ensure that our seafood is metal free we use SAFELINE POWERPHASE PLUS metal detector on all fresh seafood products processed at our facility. The POWERPHASE PLUS detector incorporates an advanced coil design for the ultimate in enhanced sensitivity, and operates at multiple frequencies to automatically accommodate variations. This detector zeros in on all types of contamination, from common ferrous and non-ferrous tramp metal to the most difficult to detect stainless steel fragments.
