Times Record column highlights UMaine food pilot plant

A Times Record column about gefilte fish and food waste reduction highlighted the University of Maine Dr. Matthew Highlands Pilot Plant, with a particular focus on its research to make food products from green crabs. “With the help of a deboning machine, they can separate the not-so-meaty crabs from their meat, resulting in a pile of shells and a pile of meat,” writes column author Susan Olcott, also director of operations at the Maine Coast Fishermen’s Association. “This is being used to test out a ‘fish sauce’ made from the green crab material.”
