Success Story NCoS-NSPRI
The use of the plastic cooling box is meant to prevent deterioration and keep fish fresh.
Harvested fish is presently carried in open basins with water either for transportation or in the market before sales. In some cases, the fish are kept in cane basket laid with fresh leaves containing Ice blocks with the top covered with old used cloth. This method usually leads to fast spoilage of the fish and a source of contamination to the fish.
