Fish meal, stabilized or Fish scrap, stabilized


Fish meal, or fishmeal, is a commercial product mostly made from fish that are not intended for human consumption; fishmeal is generally used to feed farm animals in agricultural setting. Because it is calorically dense and cheap to produce, fishmeal has played a critical role in the growth of factory farms and the number of farm animals it is possible to breed and feed. Fishmeal is made from the bones and offal left over from fish caught by commercial fisheries. The vast majority of the fish from which fishmeal is manufactured is not used for human consumption; rather, is generally manufactured from by-catchFishmeal takes the form of powder or cake.
