Abstract

The amount of material left over from crab and shrimp production in Europe every year is the same mass as 60 fully laden container ships. This 1.5 megatonnes of material is all of the bits that we do not consume, mainly consisting of shells, tails and unused meat. At present, most of this material ends up going to landfill or incinerators or is dumped back into our seas.
