Such a technique unnecessarily extends the exposure of the fish catch to the elements, where exposure results to imperative increases creating undesirable histamine levels that cause allergies when the fish is consumed. On the other hand, Mega Fishing Corporation (MFC) takes pride in being the first company in the whole of Asia to use the fish pump technology as opposed to the traditional method of using shovels to move the fish into storage compartments in the carrier ships. Because there is no need to use shovels on the fish, the fish pump technology allows less handling of fish by the fishing crew.
The pursuit of freshness and food safety, however, does not stop with the fish pump. The freshness of the catch must be preserved during transport to the canning plant. As such, as opposed to the traditional method of using tubs packed with ice, Mega Fishing Corporation uses insulated plastic storage bins to maintain fish temperature at O degrees, thereby locking in freshness. In net, the use of the fish pump and insulated plastic storage bins are some of the world class technologies that Mega Fishing Corporation has invested in to bring to the market the freshest sardines possible.
