Objective

By-products from cod species will be studied with the aim of increasing their utilisation to produce value added food ingredients. Work will focus on fat and protein fractions (liver, viscera, heads, skins and cut-offs). Increasing the proportion of fish catch used for human consumption will increase profitability, reduce waste and reduce pressure on over fishing. The project will aim to develop systems to sort, handle and store by-products on board vessels, find safe and effective preservation methods and develop well-functioning logistics. Chemical composition of the by-products will be characterised regarding species, seasonal and habitat variation. Processing methods to extract bio molecules with application in food, feed and pharmaceuticals will be studied and optimised. Finally the market for these compounds will be assessed.
