Moon-pool system

Moon-pool system

To further underline its values of integrity and fish-producing practices, both vessels use a sophisticated method of bringing the fish on board. The moon-pool or hole in the centre of the vessels is a ‘hauling well’ where the long lines are pulled through. This method ensures the safety and well-being of the crew who are then able to manage the fishing operations better from the factory deck of the vessel and can process the catch more efficiently. The moon-pool system also reduces bruising of the fish as it stops the use of gaffs or hooks to eliminate bruising and leaving “gaff-marks” in the flesh, therefore giving a better quality product.
