A more effective of cooling method is necessary for fish storage to get high quality and long freshness of fish. Ice block is not sufficient for fish storage because of its hard-solid surface that can damage the fish. Moreover for some remote area it is difficult to find ice block in good time with reasonable/low price. One solution for this problem is the usage of sea-water ice slurry for fish cooling. Ice slurry is formed when the sea-water temperature goes down to its freezing point, when the early nucleation is formed. Crystal ice can be formed when chemical equilibrium is occurred. The purpose of this present study is to observe the characteristics of ice slurry generation using scraper blade evaporator and orbital rod evaporator. The experiment is done under some predetermined experimental conditions.
