Fishing for better use of seafood industry’s side-streams
Europe’s fishing industry processes over five million tonnes of fish annually, of which, almost two third ends up as side-streams. These side-streams are either used for low-value animal feed or disposed of, a costly endeavour for the companies involved. The EU-funded WASEABI project aims to reverse this trend through new storage solutions, sorting technologies, decision tools and other technological solutions to boost the exploitation of seafood side-streams. Their aim is to ensure the valorisation of these raw materials into marketable products that transform side-streams into a source of income. WASEABI will take a whole chain perspective to succeed with high quality production of bioactive peptides for nutraceutical, food and feed applications as well as protein-based food ingredients, savoury ingredients and mineral supplements.
