This research measured the greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) from three Western Australian finfish supply chains, and determined a combination of strategies that have the potential to reduce up to 35% of the total GHG emissions. The greatest emissions came from electricity consumption, filleting waste and refrigeration gases. Cleaner production strategies identified solar energy as providing the greatest potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and potential long term profit.
