Lithuania: Fish processor discovers healthier alternative to bacon
Monday, 06 October 2014 12:21

JFish-catfishJFish, a company based near Kaunas in Lithuania, has discovered that catfish can be used to produce bacon, says According to the company’s head of production Marius Krutulis, the taste was found accidentally, when conducting tests for another product.

Krutulis emphasises the importance of the small details in the production of the fish. The taste depends not only on the proper production and smoking, but also on the way the fish is caught and slaughtered. In order to maximise the preservation of the nutritional value of the catfish, we first stun it by plunging it into cold water. In this way the fish is not stressed and the fish fillet is of the highest quality. It is a simple, but effective technology, says Mr Krutlis. The fish do not contain any artificial colors or flavour enhancers such as monosodium glutamate or smoke taste concentrates. According to Mr Krutulis, the same taste can be obtained using purely natural materials.

Iceland: Utilising fish waste is theme of inaugural conference at IceFish
Wednesday, 13 August 2014 11:37

Icefish2014Today, three decades since it was launched in 1984, the Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition is a fixed item in the global calendar of fisheries events. Starting this year on 25 September in Kópavogur, Iceland, the three-day event has been sold out with over 500 exhibitors expected to participate. The last edition of the IceFish exhibition held in 2011 attracted 12,500 visitors from 50 countries and the organisers, Mercator Media, are confident that this figure will be exceeded this year. The exhibition is a showcase for every aspect of the industry from vessel design and construction, fish catching and locating, to processing and packaging. This year also sees the launch of the Iceland Fisheries Conference, an event organised with the Icelandic government, the research organisation MATIS, and the University of Iceland. The theme of this inaugural conference is Fish Waste for Profit – Maximising Return by Utilising the Entire Fish, and papers will discuss ways of extracting parts of the fish that would normally be discarded and adding value to them, as well as offer forecasts for the most profitable forms of fish utilisation in the future. As resources of fish and seafood are limited companies are more than ever interested in ways of monetising those parts of the fish which hitherto have been considered waste. Examples include the use of fish parts, such as heads, guts, and skin to produce biodiesel, or extracting ingredients from fish waste to be used in the pharmaceutical, cosmetic, or nutraceutical industries.

Fishing-globeGlobal production of fish and seafood is expected to increase further in 2013 to 160m tonnes from 157m tonnes in 2012. Aquaculture plays an important role in this production: in 2013 FAO estimates suggest that just under half the production of fish for human consumption will come from the aquaculture industry, while a recent report from the World Bank predicts that by 2030 that share will have risen to almost two thirds. Growth in the production of farmed fish will be driven by increases in the volumes of tilapia, carp and catfish. Tilapia production in particular is expected to reach over 7m tonnes by 2030, almost twice the volume in 2010.
