From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Fish meal, or fishmeal, is a commercial product made from both whole fish and the bones and offal from processed fish. It is a brown powder or cake obtained by rendering pressing the cooked whole fish or fish trimmings to remove most of the fish oil and water, and then ground. What remains is the "fishmeal".

The major use of fish meal is as a high-protein supplement in aquaculture feed. The main producing countries in 2004 were Peru, Chile, China, Thailand, USA, Japan and Denmark. Worldwide production is about 6.3 million tons annually.[1]

Fish meal differs from fish hydrolysate in that the hydrolysate form has the oil and the protein included in the product.
