Video: Learn how fish is processed

Video: Learn how fish is processed

Learn how fish is processed in this short video. This fish is going to be washed. Washing the fish will remove the slimy, slipperiness from the skin before it is prepared. The fish travels up the conveyor belt to the water. After it has been washed, it will be filleted. This fish is called plaice. Plaice is a type of flat fish. When fish is filleted, the parts that are good to eat are kept and the rest will be thrown away. These people are experts at filleting fish. Look how quickly they can work. They can fillet thousands of fish a day. Such a large number of fish are not needed all at once so some of the fish will be frozen. These people are putting the fillets of fish onto a large roller. The roller takes the fish into a big deep freezer. The fish is frozen solid very quickly. Now the fish is frozen, it can be kept like this for several weeks if necessary, until the factory needs it for the next process. It may also be sold like this, ready for someone to defrost and cook at home. These people are sorting out pieces of frozen haddock. The haddock is going to be coated in bread crumbs and then fried. First the haddock is coated with batter. Then it is covered in bread crumbs. Finally, the fish is cooked. The fish pieces are then frozen. All this fish is frozen solid. The fish is packed into bags and weighted to make sure customers get the right amount. The last stage is to pack the fish into boxes. The boxes are then taken away to be sealed and put in cartons. These are boxes of cod. Every box gets stamped with a best before date.

One day old chicks are placed onto the shed floor, on a bedding of wood shavings and straw. These chicks are free to move about in the sheds and have access to plenty of food and water. Fans bring fresh air into the poultry sheds. Many chicken sheds offer natural day light and perching bales. The chickens are grown to different weights from 1.75kg and 2.4kg taking between 33 and 41 days to grow. he farmer will work with a veterinarian to help look after the health of the chickens. An animal nutritionist also provides the farmer with advice about how to provide the right diet for the chickens.

Poultry farming - the hatchery

Poultry farming - the hatchery

5 1/2 million chicks can be hatched each week at the Hatchery. On delivery, the eggs are moved into the hatchery egg room where they are stored at 18°C. The eggs are loaded into the setters where the chick inside the egg will be able to grow. The eggs are held at 37.5°C and regularly turned. The temperature around the eggs is closely monitored by computers. Eggs are removed from the setters 18 days later and transferred to the hatching trays. The hatching trays are put into an area called the hatchers for three days. After 21 days the chicks hatch out of their shells. The chicks are sorted by hand into different sizes and they are checked to ensure they are healthy. They are counted into chick boxes which are then taken through a spray cabinet where they are sprayed with medicine to protect the chicks from diseases. The chicks are then transported to farms where they will continue to grow.

The Himalayas

The Himalayas

Part of the world’s largest mountain range can be found in north India, the Himalayas. The mountains act as a natural barrier preventing the cold wind from Central Asia entering India and stopping southwest winds which carry monsoons, helping to fertilise India’s soil with the rain it pours down. These worksheets look at life living in the mountains in a place called Uttarakhand through a student lead activity
