Sustainable Fish Production and Processing is a unique resource bridging the gap between academia and industry by analyzing in detail new, state of the art fish production, processing, and waste management. It explores general valorization methods, focusing on the extraction of high added-value compounds and their reutilization in different fields of the food and nutraceuticals industry. The book takes a comprehensive approach to understanding the most recent advances in the field, while analyzing the potentiality and sustainability of already commercialized processes and products. It could be utilized as a handbook for anyone dealing with sustainability issues within the fish industry.

Emphasis of fish production will be given to food security issues, large marine ecosystems, aquaculture genomics, epigenetics and breeding, proteomics for quality and safety in fishery products, post-harvest practices in small scale fisheries, and life cycle impact of industrial aquaculture systems. Emphasis of fish processing and by-products, will be given on industrial thawing of fish blocks, sources and functional properties of fish protein hydolysates, recovery technologies and applications, potential biomedical applications, ready-to-eat products, fish waste for bacterial protease production, fish waste for feeding as well as lipid extraction from fish processing for biofuels.

Key Features

  • Covers recent advances in the field of fish production and processing over the last decade following the sustainability principles
  • Discusses advantages and disadvantages of relevant processes from various perspective to improve sustainability
  • Offers practical success stories and solutions to ensure the sustainable management of fish processing by-products


Food and aquaculture scientists and technologists; Professionals working in the fish industry; Food engineers who work in the fish industry and are seeking to improve their by-products management by actively utilizing waste streams in effective applications; Food, chemical and environmental engineers; Researchers working in the edge of food and environmental field. Book could be used in any course dealing with aquaculture science and technology, food waste management, valorization and sustainability, especially in post graduated programs
