A radical rethink is needed in the fishing industry to ensure that more fish trimmings can be utilised by the aquafeed sector*.
Trimmings – also referred to as co-products – are viable offcuts (eg entrails, fins, scales, heads, tails) from other fish-processing activities. They can be salvaged and ground into fishmeal to be used in animal and aquaculture feed to reduce the burden on virgin meal from wild stocks.
The use of trimmings in this way represents a major circularity benefit to the salmon industry, making use of waste that is often disposed of at sea by fishing vessels or from processing plants.

Steakholder Foods Ltd (formerly MeaTech 3D) has filed a provisional US patent application based on the formation of layers of crosslinked tissue, with the international deep-tech food company stating that this “breakthrough methodology achieves the characteristic tender flakiness of cooked fish”.
It advises that the structure is formed from several layers – to give the flaky texture with loose bonding between adjacent layers. This creates the unique structure of the fish.
Four hundred liters of diesel has leaked into Sognefjord – Norway’s longest fjord – from the two closed cages from fish farming supplier FiiZK that were damaged on Wednesday.
The cages did not have any fish in them when the accident happened at trout breeder Osland Havbruk’s facility in Sørevik, in Hayanger (Høyanger) municipality (see map), on the south side of the Sognefjord.

The fleet is short of crew, but Opromar receives requests from several countries
Without Asian, African or South American manpower, a large number of long-distance, high-altitude, coastal and even inshore ships could not supply such a healthy and essential food as fish. They cover, above all, deck positions, but many shipowners still find it difficult to find bridge and engine controls.
It is not surprising that in this context the Organization of Fisheries Producers of the Port and Ría de Marín (Opromar) declares itself "surprised by the success" of the digital contracting platform that it launched two years ago.
