Many countries are facing an aging fishing fleet, which also lacks modern fishing gear and equipment.

The management of fishing effort, construction of Fisheries Management System and Surveillance, is therefore a critical aspect of all fisheries.

Nothing secures longer shelf life of seafood as Rapid Controlled Chilling. Chilling with Slurry Ice, immediately after catch, is the best way to bring down the temperature fast and efficiently and by that, withhold the quality of the raw material. Chilling of seafood is a vital element in seafood and food processing. Thor-Ice ehf (www.thorice.is) a world leading manufacturer of Slurry Ice machines and systems, is one of our clients.
In 2002-2004, Thorp Consulting worked on a Joint Venture between Moroccan and Icelandic companies. The goal was to catch, process, market and sell Moroccan sardine and mackerel to international markets. The project was issued 60.000 tons of pelagic species in Moroccan waters, in 2004.
