New frozen smoked tuna project underway in Lae

Papua New Guinea has adopted a ‘uniquely’ new style of tuna-processing project for a value-added taste totally new to its consumers.

This came following the approval of the National Fisheries Association in January.
The process involves treating fresh tuna loins prepared as blocks with a patented filtered wood smoke, based on carbon monoxide. It is tasteless, and the results, is improved in color of the meat and has some preservative qualities.

The blocks are vacuumed packed and quick frozen for this high-quality product in the United States of America (USA) and Europe, and it does not directly compete with the more traditional fresh chilled sashimi markets.

The proponents of the proposal, Japan Foods (PNG), intend to eventually establish processing plants in Lae, Madang and Port Moresby, utilizing both large ‘yellow fin’ and ‘big eye’ tuna caught by purse seine vessels, and second grade, longline or handline-caught tuna.

The plants would require three tones of tuna per day initially, and ten tones and full production. Export revenues of over K30 million per year are projected, with other benefits in terms of employment (up to 250), technology transfer, and other by-products.

The company commenced operations in Lae recently where necessary infrastructure and fish supply are likely to be available.

The project may well offer an incentive for a local handline fishery to develop, as well as providing an attractive alternative option for longline operations.
