On 24 April, the conference "Get more value form your seafood side-streams" will be held in Barcelona, within the framework of the Seafood Expo Global, a meeting where the many interesting results obtained over the last three and a half years in the European project WaSeaBi will be presented. The conference will look at the possibilities for seafood companies to make full use of seafood products by developing new healthy and high value products from seafood by-products (specifically the results are based on those derived from herring, cod, hake, salmon and mussel cooking water).

A sound and sustainable use of the already caught fish

"With this conference we want to give the seafood industry new inspiration on ways to use seafood side-steams and show them concrete solutions that will enable them to use the side-streams for high value purposes", says Anni Simonsen, Senior Innovation Manager at Food & Bio Cluster Denmark, who is the organiser of the conference.

"We are currently facing inflation, a generalisation of higher and higher food prices and very low consumer confidence. It is therefore more important than ever for companies to focus more and more on the rational and sustainable use of fish already caught, to ensure that we make the best use of available resources," Anni continues. "This calls for new solutions from the industry, which is why it is a pleasure to showcase industry-to-industry knowledge and solutions," she concludes.

During the conference you will discover examples of how companies such as Sweden Pelagic, Barna, Royal Greenland Seafood, Pescados Marcelino and Jeka Fish have made concrete developments of side streams in their respective productions and how Nutrition Sciences has been working on using part of the production as ingredients in their nutritional feed products. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to listen to expert presentations and participate in discussions on concrete solutions to tomorrow's challenges.

Finally, the day will include a networking dinner where participants will have the opportunity to network exclusively with European representatives and policy makers from the fisheries value chain, as well as with WaSeaBi partners.
