Workshop in Fishmeal and Fish oil


 Axelborg, Axeltorv 3, Copenhagen, Denmark

November 14th- November 15th 2018



Background and outcome of the workshop

The workshop was organized by the Nordic Centre of Excellence Network and hosted by EUfishmeal. Because of changes in markets and demands, there is an urgent need for improved knowledge about the nutritional value which fishmeal and fish oil can provide in the feed industry so as to increase the value of these commodities. In order to facilitate and strengthen the Nordic cooperation and bioeconomy, a Nordic Centre of Excellence in Fishmeal and Fish oil was established in 2018 with support from the Nordic Council of Ministers. For more information about the Nordic Centre of Excellence Network and its background please click here       




The workshop was successful with 75 participants from several European countries. Researchers, producers, salesmen and customers presented current knowledge in five sessions on raw material quality, production, analytical methods, preservation and final products. After each session research needs were discussed. The last part of workshop included group discussions and a final panel discussion. The outcome of the workshop will be summarized in a report which will be published at this webpage as soon as possible.
