Sustainable Fish Production and Processing is a unique resource that bridges the gap between academia and industry by analyzing new, state-of-the-art fish production, processing and waste management. The book 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. Sections take a comprehensive approach to understanding the most recent advances in the field, while also analyzing the potentiality and sustainability of already commercialized processes and products. This resource could be utilized as a handbook for anyone dealing with sustainability issues within the fish industry.Emphasis of fish production is 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 lifecycle impact of industrial aquaculture systems. Emphasis of fish processing and by-products is given to industrial thawing of fish blocks, sources and functional properties of fish protein hydrolysates, 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 sustainability principles
