The Ike Jime Method [VIDEO]
The Ike Jime Federation is dedicated to improving the quality of your harvest while giving the utmost respect to your fish.
Ike jime tools will allow the commercial fishing industry to deliver a superior product to the market.
These tools allow you to preserve your catch, prevent degradation of the meat, and give the ultimate honor to the fish that you harvest.
Essentially your harvest will have biochemical superiority because ike jime allows a fish not to experience the chemical consequences of suffocation.
And that stress on a fish has negative effects on the quality of the meat.
The Process Of Ike Jime
Step 1: Stop the release of lactic acid and cortisol by inserting a brain spike into the brain cavity.
This allows a fish not to experience stress.
Step 2: Cut the membrane by the gill plate to bleed and place the fish into water while it bleeds (but not cold water).
This is going to pump out all of the chemicals and bacteria in the blood.
If you leave the blood inside of a fish (any fish), it will begin to rot from the inside and bacteria will start to decompose the fish.
Step 3: Use the wire (circuit breaker) to paralyze the fish by disconnecting the muscles from the central nervous system.
Step 4: Then put the fish into an ice slurry and fully submerge.
Performing the ike jime process makes a world of difference.
As an angler, you are there at the death of the fish and can create a biochemically different product.
Respect the catch.
That’s the whole principle behind ike jime.
If you honor your harvest and preserve the meat, you’ll end up with a superior product.
