Day 18- Getting more confident with tasks and joining of tilapia harvesting.

Today work started having a more quite rhythm, and the feeder Felix deserved two days off after his huge patience in the first rushing days of trial. For switching him Eric came to join me, who was really interested and kind in helping with the daily tasks.

Since we were very on time with feeding, I exploited some free time for watching the harvest of tilapias ready to be processed and sold in market. The harvest men prepared a vacuum machine sucking the tilapias inside cages and put them in plastic boxes with slurry ice (a mixture of water and ice). Then they picked up the plastic boxes on board and send them to the shore, for reaching quickly the slaughter unit of fish farm.
