This report identifies current and potential uses for co-/by-products of the crocodile, emu, goat, kangaroo and rabbit industries in Australia and examines aspects of their production, supply and demand as well as potential barriers to their viable commercialisation.

Existing and potential co-/by-products in each of the five researched industries offer good economic opportunities. Currently, the emu and goat industries commercialise their oil and offal respectively. In the medium- to long-term, viable opportunities may exist for other co-/by-products such as crocodile bones, emu feathers, goat blood, rabbit blood and rabbit manure.
