Right now samples of side-stream from the unique Nutaaq cod from Royal Greenland are being collected in Maniitsoq in Greenland.
The side-streams include heads, frames and intestines, which are usually disposed of. The side-streams from the Nutaaq cod are quite unique as there is a timespan of maximum 2 hours from water to freezer.
This means that there is a good basis for exploiting the side-streams for developing other products, ingredients or the like as they are very “fresh”.
Royal Greenland is a partner in the WaSeaBi project and will be providing raw-materials like the side-streams mentioned above.
