The Processing of Shrimp has Become One of the Export-Oriented Industries : A Part from The Book : Astaxantin from Shrimp Waste

The processing of shrimp has become one of the export-oriented industries being developed in the fisheries and marine sector. Only the edible flesh of the shrimp is taken for consumption, while the rest becomes by-products that can potentially pollute the environment. By-products from shrimp freezing typically account for 45-60% of the initial weight of the produced shrimp. These by-products include the head, shell, tail, and legs of the shrimp. Indonesia produces approximately 615,871 tons of shrimp, resulting in a potential fresh waste of 215,555 – 307,936 tons and dry waste of 53,673-76,676 tons. The higher the shrimp production, the greater the number of by-products generated.
