Enzymes obtained from fish- and shellfish-processing wastes can be used in the making of a number of useful products. Lipase enzymes from fish can break down lipids, while amylases hydrolyze starch.
Fish protein hydrolysates have been used in the food industry for the development of antioxidants, emulsifiers, flavoring agents, anti-bacterial agents and feed. As natural products, they have a growing acceptance, since natural products are preferred by some consumers over industrial
After a decade of research, Korea has produced individual glass eels for Japanese eel aquaculture. Despite dependence upon the wild seed, Japanese eel aquaculture production has been growing significantly and comprises over 27 percent of Korea’s freshwater aquaculture.
Fish protein hydrolysates are naturally rich in nutrients that can help support aquatic species’ immune defenses in resisting stressors.
Meat recovered from seafood processing byproducts could be combined with nutraceutical ingredients to form customizable seafood items.
Biofloc systems enable more intensive tilapia production. The fish adapt to the conditions within biofloc systems and grow well by utilizing the bioflocs as a feed source.
The aquaculture industry has significantly reduced fishmeal levels in feeds for major farmed species. To further reduce fishmeal use, new research approaches are essential.
Life cycle assessment studies the environmental and other potential impacts throughout a product’s life, starting at raw material and following it through production, use and disposal.
The authors conducted a study to determine how reducing the protein content of a diet would affect the growth performance of L. vannamei reared in an experimental microbial floc culture system.
