Evaluation of the environmental sustainability of the inshore great scallop (Pecten maximus) fishery in Galicia Supplementary table 2, Figure 4: 0.43 kg CO2e per functional unit
Functional unit: 139.5 g of great scallop, 3.3 g of plastic film, and 5 g of plastic label. Due to the waste generated during the processing stage, 139.5 g of final eviscerated scallop correspond to 155 g of landed scallop. The edible meat of the scallop is 20.5 g, which corresponds to 13.2% of the gross weight of the scallop.
Emissions per kg: 0.43 kg CO2e / 0.155 kg = 2.8 kg CO2e / kg
