Hot weather a boon for dried fish producers

PORT DICKSON, The current hot weather is a blessing for dried fish producers like Zakaria Wahab, 61, who said fish dry rapidly now, taking just one day instead of two or three days.

“After I’ve arranged the fish outside for drying at 7am, I can take them in at 4pm or 5pm (of course) I will make sure they are completely dry otherwise they will go mouldy in the packet.

“The heat is making the drying process a lot easier, but it also depends on the size and thickness of the fish. The sea catfish (ikan duri), for example, takes two days to dry, while fish like the shad (ikan selangat) only require a day, he told Bernama today.
