This study investigated waste minimization opportunities and implementation strategy at the fish processing industry. This study used quantitative approach with field observation and open list of questionnare method to identify resources saving. The result of this study showed that fish processing industry (Company XYZ) was not implemented a waste minimization approach. The water resources saving reached 89.76 m3 or 27.2% from fresh water per a week of the production process and water consumption saving for washing process reached 30%. The utilization of solid waste can generate economic potential reached 26% of raw material, while liquid waste reached 51% of water consumption. The waste minimization approach hopefully would assist interested the company and bring both increase environmental performance and competitive advantage in the whole fish processing industry, especially in Indonesia.
