Title: Marine oils from Australian fish: characterisation and value added products (FRDC project no. 94/115) 1994-1998
Id: 1022
Acronym: Marine oils from Australian fish
Investigator(s): Peter Nichols
CSIRO Oceans & Atmosphere - Hobart [details]

Description: Project objectives: 1.To assist Australian industry develop new marine oil based, value-added products from existing or new fisheries including the by-catch and waste generated by the fishing and related industries, through: Evaluation of new deep-sea and other shark species for squalene content and oil composition. Determination of the composition of marine oils from underexploited pelagic and other species, with particular reference to: 1. identifying optimum sources of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids and other specialty oils (e.g. diacylglycerol ethers from deep-sea and other sharks), and 2. assisting industry to develop products from these oils and specific oil fractions. Examination and optimization of methods for further refining squalene-containing and omega-3 containing marine oils, thereby increasing product value. The techniques developed will be broad-based and transferable between fish species and the developing field of single cell oils (SCO) derived from microorganisms. This aspect of the project will include evaluation and possible use of supercritical fluid extraction (SFE) and fractionation techniques.
