In 2003 a report was produced for the Juneau Economic Development Council (JEDC) Southeast Alaska Value Added Salmon Waste Study. The report, Alaska Seafood Byproducts: Potential Products and Markets and Competing Products, was a compendium of information on the raw materials and products that were and could be used for the production of fish meal and oil, crude and advanced silage products, hydrolysates, composts, fertilizers, and other products. It is unknown how many copies of the report were distributed, since the project is no longer on the JEDC Web site, but requests for copies were coming in until late 2008.
In early 2008 the Alaska Fisheries Development Foundation (AFDF) inquired about the possibility of updating the JEDC report since much had happened within the seafood byproducts industry in the previous five years. They requested that the report be expanded to include other regions of Alaska, since the JEDC report concentrated on the southeast region, and that the market information be somewhat expanded as well. They also requested that the report be submitted by September 30, 2008, so that there would be sufficient time to circulate it before the 2009 Pacific Fisheries Technologists Annual Meeting held in Portland, Oregon, in late February 2009. The draft report was submitted October 3, 2008, and the final version was submitted January 9, 2009. The report has 180 tables and 96 figures and can be downloaded from the AFDF Web site at http://www.afdf.org/past_research/2008_by_product_mkt_study.pdf (Bimbo 2008).
