					Marine Harvest - Fanad Head - Donegal
Marine Harvest are the worlds leading supplier of seafood. Their organic and farmed salmon unit located at the northern most tip of Ireland consists of hatcheries, farms and a processing plant. Originally the Cat 3 waste was mixed with the other category wastes and was being sent more than 500 miles for rendering followed by shipment overseas for incineration. This was an unsustainable disposal option and the company decided to research the market for alternatives. In order to meet the ABP regulation Marine Harvest chose the VCU system. In November 2004 The Minister for Marine Mr Pat the Cope Gallagher officially opened the site which was the first in Ireland dedicated to turning fish waste into high quality compost for horticultural use. The installation of the VCU process has significantly reduced Marine Harvests’ transportation, treatment and waste disposal costs. MHI Technical Manager, Catherine McManus says, ˆThis commitment demonstrates that Marine Harvest Ireland and aquaculture operations in general continue to lead in the development of ecologically responsible solutions, including for waste management.˜
