Seafood processing plants play an important role in global food production, which produce significant waste due to modern processing techniques. Ineffective waste management puts the environment and human health at risk and destroys valuable resources. This study explores the significance of waste generated in seafood processing plants and its effects on the environment. It highlights the requirement for effective waste management techniques to minimize ecological impact. Seafood processing generates organic waste, including shells, scales, and discarded portions. It might be difficult to dispose of such leftovers and they contribute to pollution. The potential for effective waste management techniques to turn waste into resources is highlighted. The study emphasizes the significance of sustainable practices to decrease waste, protect the environment, and advance circular economy concepts within the seafood industry.
