Utilising discards not destined for human consumption in bulk uses

CEFAS SC Mangi and TL Catchpole

Further to the Defra ‘Fishing for the Markets’ initiative, this study explores whether discards not destined for human consumption can be utilised by commercial outlets in the UK. The availability of commercial outlets for discards not used in the human food chain is a key factor in the development and success of a potential utilisation programme in the event of a total discard ban. The report provides an overview of the potential quantities of discards potentially available under a discard ban, options available for the bulk use of discards, their availability to the catching sector and associated issues. The project was funded by Defra, commissioned by Seafish and undertaken by Cefas.
