State-of-the-art factory vessel

Tai An is one of San Arawa's specialized factory vessels. This large, well-equipped vessel catches and processes hoki and Southern blue whiting, mainly.

The catch is processed as soon as the fish is brought on board and it is frozen whole or in fillet, interleaved or IQF, and finally packaged to suit our clients' requirements. The result is top-quality fish from the cold, pure waters of the South Atlantic.
