An FP7-KBBE-2011-5 Project Added value from high protein and high oil containing co-streams “APROPOS” kick-started in January 2012. Processing of fish and oil plants generates abundant amounts of co-streams which are not actually waste, but should be called co- or side streams, because they are excellent reserves of many valuable components, such as proteins, essential amino acids, healthy oils and other health promoting substances and minerals. These co-streams are currently not exploited for human nutrition, but are mainly used as feed and for energy purposes.
