The Big Fish Series: Can you eat the whole fish?
The Big Fish Series is a free online seminar series brought to you by the University of Stirling’s, Institute of Aquaculture. The purpose of this series is to highlight seafood’s roles in sustainable food systems. https://thebigfishseries.stir.ac.uk/

‘Can you eat the whole fish?’ is the second seminar of the second series co-hosted with Ca’ Foscari University of Venice on 19th January 12:00-13:00 (GMT).

The way fish is consumed around the world varies greatly. This seminar will consider how we can optimise consumption and reduce waste. As demand for processed products has grown so has waste but also opportunities to add value to lower value byproducts. The GAIN project has looked at what it will take to reduce such waste in seafood systems in Europe through scientific and technical innovations, new policies and economic instruments, and the mitigation of social constraints.

However where people DO eat the whole fish, because it is culturally preferred, this can deliver more nutritional benefit. Our panel will reflect these different contexts and discuss approaches to taking waste out of seafood systems and optimizing benefits for the Global population challenged by the environmental impacts of food production and malnutrition.
