Ice slurry technology has great potential in maximizing the chilling process of fish. Seawater is widely used as base solution of ice slurry due to Natrium Chloride content as freezing point depressant. In this study, effect of initial seawater concentration was investigated experimentally. The initial concentration of seawater was varied at 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5 and 3 wt%, respectively. Performance of systems and microscopic of ice particles were also observed. Ice slurry generated from 1 wt% seawater solution gives good agreement toward formation time of ice slurry. The diameter of particle ice increases with decrease in concentration. For application in thermal energy storage of fishing vessel, it is recommended to use low concentration of seawater.
