Our Innovative Approach

At ARL, we’re dedicated to transforming the by-products of tuna harvesting into valuable resources, including protein-rich fish meal and Omega-3 and Omega-6 fish oils. These materials are essential for the cosmetic, pharmaceutical, and agricultural industries.

Our sustainable practices are not only resource-efficient but also contribute to job creation and exports, all while reducing waste in our industry.

How We Do It

Aquaculture Resources Ltd operates a rendering plant for the processing of category III animal by-products (ABP) derived from the processing of Bluefin Tuna (Thunnus thynnus) aboard processing vessels or from land-based processing plants. The ABP is rendered and further processed into fish meal and fish oil. Current yearly production of fish meal and fish oil stands at 600t each, and these are commercialised to animal feed producers within the EU and outside of the EU.
