The Norwegian Government has stated that strategic efforts will be made for increased value creation in the seafood industry. A contribution towards this is developments in the circular bioeconomy and the introduction of a more sustainable production and increased utilization of raw materials. This report has been prepared by Nofima in collaboration with the Institute of Marine Research, the Norwegian Seafood council and SINTEF Ocean, with input from business actors, in response to an assignment from the Ministry of Trade, Industry and fishery (NFD). The task from NFD was to identify the obstacles that the industry experience related to the utilization of residual raw materials, by-products and new species that can reduce value creation in the seafood industry. The report provides an overview of current regulations for the use of residual raw materials and by-products for human consumption, feed, market, and regulatory barriers that may limit business development, examples of certification and labeling schemes, limit values for contaminants in feed, food- and feed products.
