Seafood includes all the edible fresh or saltwater fishes and other forms of aquatic animal life. Seafood has numerous uses, which include source of essential nutrients, promote heart health, improve eyesight, and boost brain power. Moreover, researchers have found that discarded seafood by-products contain bioactive peptides, collagen, gelatin, and other compounds, which can be used in the biomedical, food, and cosmetics industries.
The global seafood market is driven by shifting trend of consumers towards nutritious food products, widespread availability of different fish species, growing health consciousness, and rising disposable income of the population. However, increasing concerns about additives used in such food products and safe disposal of by-products to prevent environmental pollution hamper the market growth. Furthermore, fish skin, bones, and scales being rich sources of collagen, gelatin, calcium phosphate, and other essential organic and inorganic components can be used in packaging facilities and soil fertilization. Moreover, extracted high-protein feed ingredients from fish by-products can be utilized for animal feed processing, which presents lucrative opportunities for market players during the forecast period.
