Whole, automated processing of small fish into variety of food products

The project aimed to develop new innovative economically viable solutions for fish products with the high nutritional and added value produced from the Baltic Sea sprats.

The main result of the project is the method for a structured fish mass production from Baltic Sea fish, which could supplement or replace the fish mince produced from cod. The developed solution can be used for semi-finished products, or for new products, to be a supplement or alternative to traditional canned sprats. As a result of the project, seven product groups have been developed: fish pasta, fish dumplings, fish sausages, breaded fish products, fish pies, fish terrines, fish cutlets in jelly. The minced meat processing technology is patented.
