Seafood Processing Line

The Great Potential of Seafood Industry 

Turkey is surrounded by four seas with a wide range of fishes and marine fauna. Turkey has become a global aquaculture leader and has increased it’s exports 18 times in the last 20 years.  Turkey is the top producer of farmed European sea bass, & gilthead sea bream, and one of the world-leading producers of anchovy and farmed trout. Export of other species like pilchard, mussels, carp, sprat, horse mackerel and Black Sea salmon are also increasing in terms of volume. 

However the global increasing consumption of ready-to-eat fish products like fish fingers, croquettes, fillets, and processed aquaculture products drive companies to differentiate themselves from their competitors and innovate constantly.   

Creating Value in Seafood 

The line is designed to increase the value of Turkish seafood resources and to scale up the manufacturing capabilities, so that the companies can become more competitive by making products that stand out in terms of quality and taste. 

TÜGİP Seafood Processing Pilot Line enables companies to gain access to value added & differentiated segments of the seafood industry, scale up current production capabilities and develop products through R&D and Innovation. 

Black Sea region is the richest source of marine products in Turkey and almost half of them are caught and produced in Artvin, Giresun, Gümüşhane, Ordu, Rize and Trabzon provinces. The companies mainly manufacture marinated fish, frozen fish,  fish fillet and fishery byproducts such as fish oil and fish flour due to limited technology and investments. 

Through the pilot line manufacturers will be able to test and try value-added products such as smoked fish, gutted fish, canned fish, fish finger, fish nugget and fish burger, explore latest processing technologies and improve processing parameters.
