Fish Processing

Fish that are caught or harvested in either the wild or from aquaculture or fish farming often need to be processed for a variety of applications. Fish shredders can be used for rendering, fishmeal, organic fertilizer, hydrolysate, for further processing for extraction of fish oil, or to dispose of fish waste.

Choosing the correct fish shredder is vital to the application. When it comes to some fish waste processing applications, using a MARPOL-compliant shredder keeps customers in regulatory compliance. For other fish shredding applications, choosing the right shredder can guarantee success.
