GLRPPR Sector Resource: Reduction in Waste Load from a Seafood Processing Plant

Title:
Reduction in Waste Load from a Seafood Processing Plant

Abstract:
Beaufort Fisheries Incorporated, a manufacturer of traditional menhaden fish products (meal, oil, solubles), is currently diversifying its product line into other seafood areas. The acquisition and installation of a spiral freezer with a capacity of processing in excess of 6000 lbs/hr and a freezer with storage of more than 1,000,000 lbs of finished product are major steps in this endeavor. This project is a feasibility study for reduction of waste load and water use in current processing operations: it also explores future business uses for the new processing/freezer facility.
