Abstract

In central and southern coastal areas of Vietnam, annual yield of anchovy is enormous that leads the high demand for anchovy drying. Moreover, seafood in generally and anchovy in particularly brings more benefit for fishermen, especially dried anchovy as an exporting product is one of the main their income. The market requires that anchovy product has to be dried before packaging to export. There are many drying methods to process the anchovy but some problems might need to be solved such as the drying efficiency, the low product quality and sanitation, and the environmental annihilation. In order to using the profuse solar energy, a model for experiment investigation the anchovy dryer has been conducted in ThuDuc district, Hochiminh city with the anchovy caught from Kien giang and Baria-Vung tau province, southern Vietnam. The results indicate that solar energy is one of renewable energy which can be completely used for anchovy drying with high drying efficiency. The dried anchovy has good color, high quality, and especially it passes the requirements of food hygiene and environment protecting.
