Repurposing waste to valuable aquaculture feed sources

"Dr. Dave says the discarded parts of farmed salmon can be as valuable as fillets sold in grocery stores because they are rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids (omega-3 and omega-6), protein and marine calcium. 'We found omega-3 levels to be much higher than in the main product. They are more concentrated in other parts of the fish than the fillet, which we are using for human consumption.'" Researchers are also analyzing the potential use of shrimp-chitin and sea cucumbers. Excerpt from Memorial University Gazette.
