Seafood experts agree that a key component to consistent, high quality live fish is the speed and efficiency used in moving the fish from their source to your tanks. Kent SeaTech has perfected a proprietary process for growing and harvesting live fish to ensure that all of our products reach the consumer as rapidly as possible, in excellent condition, and of the highest quality. Ask your local seafood marketers and you will learn that Kent SeaTech live fish are in better condition than the fish from any other source, and will remain stronger and healthier in their live display tanks usually until they are sold, nearly eliminating the need to move them from live tanks to your “fresh-on-ice” displays. This factor alone has an enormious affect on your overall returns and profits.
The harvesting process at Kent SeaTech begins before daybreak, as shown in the photographs below.
