Values from waste / By-products in value

The report describes the first results of a technology transfer project for development and innovation in the production of value-added products from underutilized by-products of fish processing in three different areas, ie. Northern Iceland, Northern Norway and Northwest Russia. The project was a joint effort of researchers and developers as well as the fishing industry in the areas. The report provides an insight into the amount of unused products in the area. In addition, it discusses the utilization of three unused raw materials, blood, oats and eyes, and their possible utilization as bioactive substances, including feed for fish and other uses.

The report describes first results of work on technology transfer for development and innovation for production of value added products from underutilized by-products of fish production and processing in three different areas ie Northern Iceland, Northern Norway and North Western Russia. The project is a joint effort of research and development entities and fish processing industries in the above mentioned areas. The report gives an overview on availability of underutilized by-products in the area. In addition, possible ways of utilizing three different by products, fish blood, fish testes and fish eye compounds, and how they might be used as bioactive compounds into specialty feeds for aquaculture and other possible products.

Marketing and development of health bars with fish proteins / Health bars with fish proteins - development and marketing

The aim of the project was to develop and market energy bars that contain fish proteins. In this way, a broader basis for MPF Ísland's protein products in Grindavík is formed from extra fish raw materials. The implementation of the project went well and different types of energy bars were tested, baked and frozen and with different ingredients. Good products were obtained but none were considered good enough for marketing, but further experiments are planned based on the experience gained in this project.  

The aim of the project was to develop and market health bars with fish proteins and thereby strengthen the seafood industry in Grindavík the hometown of MPF Iceland and thereby in Iceland. Different health bars were tried out and developed. Both frozen and baked types were processed but none was evaluated ready for marketing at this stage and further trials are therefore planned based on the presented findings.
