Catches of herring and sprat (especially Baltic catches) are characterized by being heterogeneous in size with a big part of small fish unsuitable for processing into consumer products.
The fish processing industry and landing of fish catches is concentrated on few ports.
The downgraded fish and the fish offal have – for instance in Denmark – for many years been processed into fish meal. However, setting-up this kind of production is not only extremely costly in investments but the production is also extremely energy demanding and polluting in the form of bad smell and outlet of stickwater to the environment.
An interesting and viable alternative to production of fish meal is to use the same raw material for silage. Not only are the investments required for setting-up such production far less than for fish meal but the quality of the resulting animal feed products is much better in nutritional value and there are no pollution of the environment connected with this kind of production. The only “negative” characteristic of silage is its liquid form.
This however, can easily be overcome and actually turned into a positive
characteristic by extrusion of the final customised feed mixture. The final
product will be dry

The final product will be dryand stable in storage and can be tailored by ingredients used in the recipe to the needs of the animals for which the final feed is intended.
A plant for grading of herring and sprats including production of silage have been delivered and started up ready for production in May 2002 at Superfish SA (ABBA Seafood) in Kolobrzeg, Poland.
We offer to design a customised
silage plant for your need and production capacity and will be able to assist
you all the way from design to the plant is ready for production of silage.
