Seafood Industry

Australia’s sizable Seafood Industry has a reputation at the global forefront in biosecurity management and aquatic animal health.

Zychem Technologies has been a part of this success story as one of the first Australian companies to convince local operators to incorporate chlorine dioxide (ClO2) into hygiene management systems. At the time, oxidation methods such as this were nothing but a tightly held secret in US and European markets.

The outcome? Chlorine dioxide is today considered a benchmark industry product for Australian aquaculture harvesting, wild catch and processing.

And thanks to global eco trends, it continues to gain popularity as more and more research endorses the eco genius product life cycle of Cl02 – Potent at activation, able to kill pathogens and microbial loads. And biodegradable in the aftermath. It really is the chemical equivalent of a smiling assassin.

Suitable for habitat and ecosystem hygiene in fishing farms

Suitable applications for OnBoard aspects of the seafood processing chain

OnBoard Seafood Processing

Onboard, chlorine dioxide is widely used in brine tanks and below deck holding tanks to remove microbiological load in water. This is achieved through the simple science of selective oxidation – a gift first recognised by science in the 1940s. The resulting impact is that seafood catches arrive at shore with hygiene measures already in place, thereby improving shelf life.

Highly suitable to treat blood water prior to discharge as Chlorine dioxide biodegrades to a simple salt after use.

Eco sensitive outcomes for oceans and waterways which are well documented objectives for organisations such as Seafood Services Australia, Dept of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry. Austrade And the Australian Good and Grocery Council.

Zychem’s products tested to show greater activation efficiency with sea water – eliminating the need for secondary onboard water sources.

On shore Seafood Processing

Zychem’s Chlorine dioxide formulations can also be used onshore for a variety of uses:

Incorporate into display ice used to reduce odour and microbial load in retail outlets and fish markets.

Use as dips for fillets, prawns, mussels, whole fish, and various shellfish and bivalves to reduce surface contamination, thus increasing shelf life.

Unactivated Zydox can be added to MAP packaging to further increase shelf life.
