ALASKA - Oil cooked out of piscine heads, entrails and skeletons is generating heat and electricity for fish processors on the Aleutian Island of Unalaska. Alaska companies are among the first in the world to use fish oil on a large scale as a cheaper, cleaner-burning substitute for diesel fuel. At Unisea Inc., in Dutch Harbor, thousands of gallons of pollock fish oil are mixed each day with diesel and used to power the seaside plant&#39;s electrical generators and boilers. <i>Source: InsideBayArea</i>
