Abstract

Work on hoki by-products at The New Zealand Institute for Plant & Food Research Limited (PFR) is increasing the sustainability and value of New Zealand’s hoki catch without an increase in catch volume. Through an understanding of the biochemical treasures trapped within supposedly ‘low value’ by-products (e.g. skins, eyes, fish frames) we can devise technologies and applications to allow full use of these materials. By working closely with industry we can deliver economical and safe processes to make new products and provide the scientific information necessary to sell them in an increasingly sophisticated marketplace.
