Ecoonomical convenience foods from locally sourceable fish

The project focused on the development of a technological process for an innovative fish-based convenience food with increased nutritional value that could be used in daily consumption. At the same time, the project succeeded to develop a cost-optimizing production process, including solutions for extended shelf life.
