The objectives of the Project include:
- Designing and developing a network for the collection, handling, maintenance and transfer of raw material FBPD from both the fish auction and the various fish resale points (central fish markets, super markets, fish markets, open markets) to selected collection points and processing facilities of CMFO.
- The creation of practical solutions for the separation and proper storage of FBPD according to the category of HAVB to be produced.
- The development of protocols, adapted to Greek species of FBPD, for production of HAVB (gelatine, hydrolyzed collagen, collagen peptides, fatty acids and minerals-trace elements).
- The elaboration of an integrated National Business Plan for the exploitation of all raw materials from FBPD by CMFO.
The above objectives are intended to add value to each kilo of harvested and discarded fish biomass and to apply practices that have been already applied in several European countries, following adaptation to Greek conditions (species, way of transport, legislation, etc.).
