WORLDWIDE: Fishmeal producers scour for new raw material sources to meet demand

WORLDWIDE: Fishmeal producers scour for new raw material sources to meet demand | Aquaculture Products & Marketing Network | Scoop.it

Sourcing more by-products from fisheries and aquaculture was touted as a solution as speakers discussed ways to find alternative sources of raw material to produce their valuable meal and oil.

 

The question is a pressing one for members of IFFO, who account for around 60% of world fishmeal and fish oil production and 80% of the amount traded worldwide.

 

Fishmeal production amounts very roughly to five million metric tons a year, and is not set to increase based on its current raw material sources.

Yet demand is likely to keep growing, driven by aquaculture and pharmaceutical producers, said Andrew Jackson, technical director of IFFO.

 

“Our biggest challenge is how to meet this demand…where to find new raw materials,” said Jackson, speaking to Undercurrent News on the sidelines of the conference.

 

This is even more pressing as fisheries management throughout the world is becoming more precautionary, with Peru for instance drastically cutting its second season anchovy quota last year, despite the resource being considered as having a strong biomass.

 

Peruvian anchovy is the biggest single source of fishmeal output today, and the cut caused global production to drop by one million metric tons in 2012, to 4.5m.

 

Hand in hand with this, several fishmeal producers, for instance in Peru, are increasingly looking at using their small pelagic catches for human consumption products, instead of fishmeal.

 

Such a development would not be new to the industry — it was for instance not so long ago that mackerel and herring were considered unsuitable for human consumption in the UK, said Jackson.

 

Fish oil, meanwhile, is under increasing demand from the pharmaceutical and neutraceutical industries.

 

It is estimated their demand alone could gobble the entire fish oil production from Peru within the next five years, maybe even two-to-three years, IFFO’s director Andrew Mallison told Undercurrent.

 

According to Mallison, tackling this demand challenge will mean improving current production methods – with increasing use of techniques such as steam drying — while looking beyond the traditional sources to new sources, such as by-products, waste streams, or algae.

 

To reflect this, IFFO has changed its strapline from the “International fishmeal and fish oil organization” to “The marine ingredients organization”.

 

New sources could include the likes of algae and krill, which have had heavy media attention in recent times, thanks to their content of sought-after omega-3 fatty acids naturally present in fish oil and fishmeal.

 

In the short term, however, IFFO believes one of the most promising new sources of fishmeal and oil today is much closer to home: namely trimmings, or by-products, both from fisheries and aquaculture.

 

By-products, a multi-million potential

 

IFFO estimates that 35% of the world’s fishmeal, or 1.5m metric tons, is currently made from aquaculture and fisheries trimmings, and believes this has a potential to grow much more.

 

To gauge their additional potential, IFFO asked the University of Stirling in Scotland, UK, to estimate how much aquaculture and fisheries by-products are currently untapped, and could be used for fishmeal.

 

The study found that 6.5 million metric tons of additional fishmeal could be created from currently unutilized processed by-products, said David Little, of Stirling. As much as 1.35m of this could be from Asia (excluding China, the Middle East and CIS countries) alone, he said.

 

The levels of utilization vary greatly across the industry, said Little. In Vietnam’s Mekong delta, for instance, producers recycle 100% of their pangasius by-products.

 

In contrast, EU fisheries, or carp farms in India, probably have a lot of untapped potential, said Little.

 

However, quantifying the available by-products that could be used for fishmeal is not straightforward, he said. In Asia,for instance, the potential could become much greater if cosumers end up changing their eating habits from whole fish today, to packed fish.

 

For instance, Chinese aquaculture is dominated by carps, which are unlikely to be processed in the short to medium term, he said.

 

Aquaculture on its own could supply over 18m tons by 2031, when excluding carps, or 30m when including carps, found the study.

 

Other grey areas include regulation — in the EU, rules preventing inter-species feeding limit the use of any by-products made from the same species that it is fed to.

 

The EU’s new ban on discards is also an unknown, and could possibly be significant, said Jackson.

 

“If fishermen are having to catch fish for which there is no market for human consumption, then there could be potential for fishmeal there,” he said. “Ultimately it’s better if it’s not caught, but if they are forced to land it, it’s a possibility.”

 

Then, there are issues of scalability, and the availability of fishmeal plants.

 

Silage is another method that could be explored further, to use by-products that are currently being left to waste.

 

The concept — which consists of liquifying fish by-products using natural enzyme — creates a product with lower protein levels than fishmeal, but is particularly useful in areas where there are no fishmeal plants available, including onboard vessels, as the liquid can be kept for months without putrefaction (up to two years according to the FAO).

 

While the concept has been around for years, production is still very low, in part because transport costs can be high, and because the product is less well established than meal.

 

Keeping an eye on GM oil

 

As the hunt for raw materials continues, competition also continues to emerge from new corners, including from the much-touted production of algae and krill.

 

These have a lot of potential, said Jackson, but for the moment, the economics are challenging and they cannot compete with fishmeal and oil on price.

 

Instead vegetable sources, such as soy-based meal, as the “biggest competition” facing fishmeal producers at the moment.

 

One development, however, that Jackson and Mallison are keeping an eye on is the potential onset of genetically modified oil containing the valuable omega-3 EPA and DHA fatty acids.

 

While no such product is on the market yet, the applications pipeline from pharmaceutical companies in the US shows research is ongoing and products could materialize in the near future, said Mallison.

 

Such a product “could be competitive”, said Jackson, provided there is acceptance from the market.
