Researchers from Finland come up with many innovative ways to utilize fish waste and parts.
Fish is more than just food, and the full use of fish parts benefits both the traditional and circular economy.
The full potential of fish value-added products remains untapped. Researchers from the Finnish Institute of Natural Resources (LUKE) offer their views on how to harvest unused fish parts.
Fish skin contains collagen, a protein used in cosmetics to increase skin elasticity and strength. Collagen can also be turned into gelatine that is used in foods, like gummies, as a gelling ingredient.
Fish skin can also be cured and tanned for leather products such as bags or shoes. Fish scales contain chitin, an organic substance that can be converted into chitosan.
For example, Chitosan has many applications for biomedical, functional foods and agriculture. The most severe applications include using chitosan as a repair material for car paint coatings.
Fish bones are an excellent source of various minerals, such as calcium and phosphorus, and also contain collagen. The minerals can be used as raw materials in the chemical and fertilizer industry. By taking phosphorus from the fish bones, the circle can be closed.
