Conservation Through Utilization with Dallas Abel of the Kai Ika Project

Aquademia: The Seafood and Sustainability Podcast

In previous episodes, we’ve discussed various uses of discarded fish parts, from grinding into fish meal to utilizing it as fertilizer, but sometimes there’s a simpler solution: eat it! There’s a lot of food in those fish heads and frames, and some populations consider the heads a delicacy. The Kai Ika project is set up to bring those discarded fish heads and frames to the people that want them. Dallas Abel joined us to talk about their mission of Conservation through Utilization. Kai Ika is an honorable project that everyone should know about!
