Air circulation by fan is necessary because the round shape and firm tautness of the fish give them a small "footprint" and reduce the rate at which heat can be extracted from the fish by conduction. Blast freezing, on the other hand, and even the use of supplementary blower coils is generally frowned on because of the dehydration that results from the sudden localized drop in air temperature at the coil.
