The world of by-products

Blue Harvest is specialized in the marketing of by-products from the fish industry.
Our goal is to turn by-products and by-catch into the highest possible raw material, suitable for diverse purposes such as food, pet food and bait.
Blue Harvest is a flexible and efficient company that works with open communication and a strong focus on a long term relationship.

We see a challenge in the global situation for food and food production.
The demand for food is growing rapidly and the wishes of consumers are changing and getting stronger. Fishermen catch fish but consumers mostly demand unrecognizable pieces, often without skin and bones. This situation brings a big task for the food industry and it is getting more and more important to minimize the waste of food in order to optimize the usage of natural resources. Blue Harvest wants to play a role in this case and has accepted the challenge!


Fish for food

Ecological and healthy! Roe for pâté, trimmings for salads, mince for burgers, racks for soup and more.

Fish for pets

Fish is indispensable in the diet of cats and dogs, whether it’s a dried skin, sausage or simply raw fish.

Fish for bait

Crabs and lobsters are picky, therefore we offer a wide range of fish bones and whole fish from by-catch.


  • Trachurus trachurus
  • Limanda aspera
  • Salmo salar
  • Trigla lucerna
  • Pleuronectes platessa
  • Reinhardtius hippoglossoides
  • Sebastus marinus
  • Scomber scrombus
  • Gadus morhua

How we work

The by-products are often a consequence of a strong demand for a special part of the fish, a lack of demand for certain species and increasingly a matter of regulations. Fishermen and fish processors want and also need to focus on their core business. The by-products are often considered a burden, and that's where we come in! We find the best and most ecological way to use the products in order to minimize waste and optimize the yield. 

We take care of the sales of by-products, but source for clients too and help companies with cases concering fish by-products. We can work as a trader or as an agent, in order to keep the costs as low as possible.
