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.
