Stolt Sea Farm (SSF) has joined a partnership project, called Life Refish, to reduce waste and optimize the use of by-products from fishing activity.
The partnership is led by Galician canned seafood company Jealsa and includes other industry leaders Grupo Nueva Pescanova, Oprormar and Valora Marine Ingredients, as well as SSF.
Together, the companies plan to establish a biorefinery to process fish that are caught but are, according to European regulations, too small to be marketed and seafood processing by-products from aquaculture and the Peach. Fish and by-products will be used in environmentally friendly products that can be marketed in compliance with all regulations.
Stolt Sea Farm’s role in the project is to supply the biorefinery with fish processing by-products, such as skins and bones. He will also investigate the potential value of these by-products, for example, in the production of fish hydrolyzate (a versatile liquid often used as a fertilizer) and collagen fish oil.
Ultimately, Life Refish aims to support fishing communities – as undersized fish are deducted from their quotas – and the sustainability of the seafood industry as a whole.
Stolt Sea Farm’s Head of Research and Development, Ana María Riaza, said: “Stolt Sea Farm is committed to reducing our environmental impact, promoting the circular economy and maximizing the use of our cultured fish. sustainable way.
“We are delighted to be part of the Life Refish project, which is not only aligned with our environmental ambitions, but also helps the industry to operate in a more sustainable way.
