STUDY TOUR TO THE
SALTED FISH INDUSTRY WITH MR FLAT STANLEY
On Thursday, October 7
Th. 2004, our school BPK PENABUR Bandar Lampung and Mr. Flat Stanley
visited the salted fish industry in Batu Payung, Tarahan Village, South
Lampung Regency. We met Mr. Pasek there. He is salted fish entrepreneur.
He has some workers. They made salted fish from small and medium big fish.
We interviewed him. We got some information from him about how to make
salted fish, as follows:
1. Ingredients : fish,
iodized salt, and salt water.
2. Tools :
o. Candang (a small
basket with holes made of bamboo)
o. Laha (a bamboo flat
for drying fish)
o. Stove (made of
bricks, zinc and board)
3. How to make:
a. Sprinkle some salt
on the wet fish and put the fish in order, leave them for about 2 hours.
b. Put salty fish into
boiling salt water using candang for about 2 minutes
c. The last step, put
the cooked fish on laha and dry them in the sun.
There is particular
way to dry the fish to avoid them from being rotten, I e:
Dry the small fish
in 3 – 4 hours, and for the big fish you needs any longer time.
Keep the salted fish
away from the rain.
Mr. Pasek said that he
had distributed his alter fish to Jakarta, and his product got the best
The advantages of our
We increase our
knowledge about how to make salted fish.
We understand that
the sunshine is very important for drying up some salted fish.
We conclude that
salt is very important for food preservation, because it can delay the
growth of bacteria and fungus.
We hope that Mr. Flat
Stanley would also be satisfied with this study tour to the salted fish
industry. During in Bandar Lampung Mr Flat Stanley wears the traditional
clothes of Lampung (tapis).
