Session: FISHFEED AND FISH QUALITY

Speech: Fishmeal and Fish Oil as essential components of Aquafeeds

Despite regular promotion of novel ingredients for aquafeeds in the media, fishmeal and fish oil continue to be the mainstay of feed for farmed fish.  This presentation takes a look at the reality, and the reasons why the nutritional and resource use efficiencies of these materials are too important to be overlooked, and also unlikely to be replaced in the true sense of the word.  Growing aquaculture volumes require parallel growth in aquafeed production. This will come not from single ingredients but from a basket of available materials, including fishmeal and fish oil.
