This is bizarre. Why is the process so convoluted? Seems like something they could have streamlined at some point, especially once they started running into financial trouble.
It’s how frozen fish is done (think fish sticks). It’s cut by hand and labor is so much cheaper in those countries.

LJS (and Captain D's and similar) is just a dying brand. Consumer demand is decreases every year. These days people want chicken, beef, and bacon, not fish. Also, very high cost of sales. They catch it, freeze it, ship it to China or Ecuador, cut it, refreeze it, ship it to LA, send it by train across the country, then deliver to DCs.
Lies. When I was in HS and worked at the LJS (and Capt D's and Arthur Treachers Fish and Chips) we caught the fish the night before and cleaned them the morning that we fried and sold them.

I still have the scaling knife.
