FishFermPlus at Seafood Expo Southern Europe

Fischfilet FishFermPlus 01 ttz-Bremerhaven-150x100


Seafood Expo Southern Europe


22nd-24th September 2014



Within the scope of the EU-funded project FishFermPlus ttz Bremerhaven has developed a new process for more efficient utilisation of fish. The process is based on fermentation enabling innovative new product applications by using so called starter cultures like it is known for a long time in the yoghurt production. Fish is currently mainly naturally fermented like it is common use in Asia.

Advantage of the process developed by ttz Bremerhaven is the selective generation of desired sensory characteristics giving the products a special unique flavour. First tastings have confirmed this. Additionally, fermentation assures safety and shelf-life of the products.

The newly developed product prototypes will be presented for the first time at Seafood Expo Southern Europe taking place from 22nd to 24th September 2014
in Barcelona. The project partners will offer a product tasting at their own
stand (No. I7008).

One novelty is fermented and smoked blue marlin filet produced together with project partner Die Räucherei. Second, fermented and brushable salmon mince developed by project partners BG Production and Quality Food & Products will be presented.

The two-year project, which includes also the Danish partners ISI Food Protection and the Technical University, has the objective of valorization of high-quality but currently not used filet leftovers incurring during fish filet production.

Thanks to the innovative bioprocess and further processing, new application possibilities
for the valuable raw material fish arise. The processed salmon mince can be used for pasta fillings as well as pizza toppings, for example. Thus, the economic efficiency for fish
producers is optimized. At the same time, by adding value to the raw material,
sustainability requirements are met, which are especially important for limited resources
in times of overfishing.
