The high worldwide amount of residues derived from the banana harvest is an opportunity to create synergies between the banana industry and aquaculture, from a circular economy perspective. The present work objective is to evaluate the inclusion of banana by-products, such as banana pseudo-stem and banana flower in tilapia feeds, and to explore the...
Mullets (Mugilidae) present significant potential for sustainable aquaculture diversification due to their eurythermal, euryhaline, and low-trophic nature. However, the physiological differences and optimal cultured conditions among the diverse mullet species are quite unknown. For these reasons, the present study aimed to address two main objectiv...
The aim of this work is the optimization of phenolic compound extraction from three by-products of banana crops (rachis, discarded banana, and banana’s pseudostem pulp), as a way to valorize them through a green extraction process. The influence of the temperature and aqueous ethanol concentration (Et-OH) on extract properties (total phenol content...
Among of the actual challenges for the sustainable aquaculture development are to lower the trophic level of the cultured species, and to increase the use of by-products from the primary sector. The golden mullet (Liza aurata) is a marine low trophic level consumer present in the Mediterranean and in the Canary Islands, where there was a significan...
Banana flower and banana pseudo‐stem are by‐products discarded after the harvest and the processing of banana fruit and banana plant. This study aimed to determine whether these banana by‐products could be good candidates as new functional ingredients. Both dried banana flower and pseudo‐stem showed an interesting nutritional composition, like prot...
