  This paper explains the continuous endeavor of a Fishing Company to reuse and place value on fishing wastes, whose possible benefits were unknown. We have considered the squid cuttlebone (endoskeleton) to generate B-Chitin and B-Chitosan, biopolymers with many properties and benefits. Armadora Pereira is a fishing company based in Vigo (Spain) with agencies in many countries, specially devoted to the squid extractive fishing.

  Committed to the use of sustainable and environment-friendly new measures, we opted for innovative approaches such as scientific investigation on the usage and placing value on sub-products generated from our captures industrial process.

  Our B-Chitosan offers a great level of deacetylation - ultrapure level - and physicochemical characteristics. The unique characteristics of our B-Chitosan made it an splendid candidate for biomedical and pharmaceutic industries; production of bandages, use in material engineering and also an excellent material to create encapsulating structures to monitor releasing of drugs/nutrients, as well as utilization in high profile cosmetic and nutritional industries.
