FISH FARMING TECHNOLOGY

The three ABP categorys: Individual disposal methods

Referring to the Scottish Government mandated ways of appropriately disposing of aquatic ABP, each of the previous categories mentioned can be processed in a number of different ways. Category 1: • Incineration or co-incineration at an ABP approved plant; • Pressure sterilisation; • Using them as fuel for combustion at an ABP approved combustion plant. Category 2: • Incineration or co-incineration at an ABP approved plant; • Pressure sterilisation; • Using them as fuel for combustion at an ABP approved combustion plant. Category 3: • Incineration or co-incineration; • Sending them to landfill after they have been processed; • Processing them, if they are not decomposed or spoiled, and using them to make feed for farm animals; • Processing them and using them to make petfood; • Processing them and using them to make organic fertilisers / soil improvers; • Using them in composting or anaerobic digestion; • Using the Fish Silage Processing Method (ensiling followed by heat treatment) - same as Category 2 method; • Using them as a fuel for combustion.

Using an incinerator means that you are able to dispose of fallen stock quickly and with controlled access to your grounds. Using this method is considered especially sustainable as it does not leave a surplus in waste once the fish have been destroyed; it probably smells better than it does in landfill you would imagine also. Disposing of fish in this manner (which is not necessarily possible with a grinding machine and this article will go into shortly) also means that you destroy disease. Eliminating a lot of the risk of the possibility of spreading disease, which may have killed the stock in the first place. This range of marine waste incinerators are all DEFRA approved, comply with EU Animal By-products Regulation, (EC) No 142/2011 and pass international standards. The machines are portable, and purpose built for aquaculture. They include many additional features, ensuring extended durability, and an ability to cope with harsh environments, the company describes them as “extremely robust and built to last”.
