There are three potential sources of raw material for the production of HAVB from FBPD in Greece:
- Animal by-products (ABP) eventually not sold at the 10 landing sites of OKAA (~ 450 tons).
- Discarded catches (the term refers to the percentage of unwanted catches that after arriving on board are subsequently discarded at sea due to non-market value) (~ 40,000 tons),
- ABP after processing of fish in the commercial and man manufacturing chain (~ 22,000 tons).
These sources will be sorted by geographic area, month, species and size (where possible), drawing on data from the National Fisheries Data Collection Framework Program.
