Fish is a highly perishable commodity. Its preservation soon after its catch from the water is essential. Icing the fresh fish is the simplest preservation method. In order to meet the ice demand of the fishermen, 5 Tonne capacity Ice Plant was set up in the year 1966. At the same time a 10 tonne capacity cold storage plant was also established. As there is no demand for cold storage space, the plant is idle now. Another ice plant of 10 tonne capacity was set up in the year 1986 which is presently functioning and ice is being marketed throughout the year with peak season falling between February to May.
