fish meal

Fish meal is a commercial product made from fish raw materials and species not usually not destined for human consumption, commonly used as farmed animal feed ingredient, mostly in aquaculture. Fishmeal is made from whole fish or side streams fractions, such as bones, skins, guts, and trimmings, from fisheries or aquaculture. Fish meal powder or cake are produced by cooking of the fish raw materials, separation of press cake and water/oil phases (stick water and fish oil), drying and dewatering of the different fractions and mixing back the dry fractions to a meal.

hydrophobic amino acids

Amino acids are grouped according to their side chains. Those with hydrophobic side chains are glycine (Gly), alanine (Ala), valine (Val), leucine (Leu), isoleucine (Ile), proline (Pro), phenylalanine (Phe), methionine (Met), and tryptophan (Trp). The hydrophobic side chains are composed mostly of carbon and hydrogen and tend to be repelled from water, which has implications for the proteins' tertiary structure

fishy smell

The characteristic fishy odour of fish products derives mainly due to the presence of trimethylamine (N(CH3)3; TMA). The oxidised form of TMA trimethylamine oxide (TMAO) is practically odourless.
