Who We Are
Fish Waste for Profit 2019 is the 3rd edition of the Icelandic Fisheries Conference, which will run separately to the IceFish Exhibition for the first time from 10-11 April 2019.
The reutilisation of fish processing by-products is a lucrative add-on to regular fish processing, serving the cosmetic, pharmaceutical and agricultural industries. Estimates reveal that 43% of fish and shellfish resources end up as wastage, which represents a significant amount of potential profit that could be generated from otherwise discarded material.
