Surimi processing generates rest raw materials (RRM) including viscera, skin, filleting frame, bone and wash water, which potentially could be used in preparation of valuable ingredients like marine proteins and oil, protein hydrolysate, and gelatine for food or feed application. The report gives and overview over regulations for the rest raw materials, and handling and processing to the final products such as protein powders, fish meals, oils etc. The review focuses on the legislations adopted by the EEA, national legislation in Norway and India. Concluding, if the raw material (in this case rest raw material after fish processing) produced in human grade factories are processed under food hygiene legislation, the final product can be used for food application. The requirements for the raw material, handling and processing and final product for human consumption are very similar both in EEA and India and discussed in report. By-product definition is regulated only in EU, for India no specific definitions of by-product categories exit. By-products or RRM can be used for feed application under specific regulations discussed in the report. In India Bureau of Indian Standards issues regulations for quality of animal feed ingredients such as fish meal.
