Seafood industries produce huge amount of wastes in the form of shrimp head and shell. These waste causing environmental problems as a result of uncontrolled dumping of the bio wastes. The aim of this study is the development of low cost and environment friendly techniques to utilize the shrimp waste. Shrimps waste powder is good sources of protein, fat and minerals. It can offer a potential source for exploitation as human consumption as well as animal feed. The results of biochemical composition show that the percentage of protein in the shrimp waste powder was higher (32.06 %) than that of fresh waste (22.85 %). The lipid (9.70 %) and ash (21.36 %) composition in shrimp waste powder forced us to determine its mineral composition. Minerals concentration such as sodium, potassium, phosphorus, calcium, magnesium, iron, and manganese was found to be 53.2 mg/g, 47.5 mg/g, 21.8 mg/g, 89.1 mg/g, 27.1 mg/g, 39.4 mg/g, 17.4 mg/g respectively in the shrimp waste powder. The powder of shrimp waste was found to be microbiologically safe and acceptable to the trained panelists on overall sensory evaluation.

Key words: Shrimp waste powder, Mineral composition, Sensory evaluation, Biochemical composition
