Reducing Water and Trade Effluent Costs in Fish Processing

  • Richard B. Watson


The Seafish Industry Authority (Seafish) is a statutory body funded by levy. Its main duty is to promote the efficiency of the UK fishing industry, whilst taking into account the needs of the consumers of fish. Coastal fish processors face a dramatic increase in trade effluent charges as a result of tightening environmental legislation. This chapter summarises the work that Seafish has carried out to reduce the costs associated with water usage and trade effluent disposal in fish processing. Detailed industry audits were carried out to identify the key problem areas in the main processing operations. The simple waste minimisation solutions identified and developed are discussed.
