Abstract

A unique research program was developed to measure greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) from three Western Australian finfish supply chains, and to determine a combination of strategies that have the potential to reduce up to 35 % of the total GHG emissions. The areas of the greatest greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from three Western Australian finfish supply chains were identified using a partial life cycle assessment (PLCA). Potential cleaner production strategies (CPSs) to reduce those GHG emissions were then developed and assessed for their potential GHG emission reduction, impact on the capital and production costs, and impact on product quality.
