Aquaculture Feed For Other Species | Cargill

Using crops as aquaculture feed fundamentally links aquaculture and agriculture.

Aquaculture makes up only about 8 percent of the global animal feed business, which is led by poultry, Sequeira said. But the fish feed market is growing at about 9 percent annually.

Researchers from the University of Oviedo have for the first time analysed a DNA fragment from commercial feed for aquarium cichlids, aquaculture salmon and marine fish in aquariums. The results show that in order to manufacture ... there has been a significant rise in the demand for aquaculture feed across the industry

This study was carried out to evaluate the value chain performance of the aquaculture feed sector in Egypt, in terms of value addition, employment and profitability. The strengths and weaknesses of each link of the value chain were assessed and appropriate upgrading, management and development strategies were suggested. Quantitative data were collected for each link in the value-chain through structured questionnaires that were drafted and distributed to the key players in the sector; 25 fish feed mills and 34 fish farms covering different geographical and production regions.As we continue to deplete the ocean of wild fish in our never-ending quest to feed ourselves, we’ve turned to fish farming as a possible solution. But aquaculture hasn't always been the cleanest industry around. The , sponsored by Australian Aid, the World Wildlife Fund, and several others, aims to nurture new ideas in sustainable aquaculture development that help those already working in the industry improve their lives and make better products.The findings, which appear in the open-access journal , are a major breakthrough in the quest to develop sustainable, fish-free feeds for aquaculture, the world's fastest growing food sector. The Dartmouth study is the first report of a marine microalgae species being successfully used as a complete replacement of fish oil in feed for Nile tilapia, which thrived on the new diet and bulked up despite eating less. A PDF is available on request."Feed manufacturers can explore this approach to develop aquafeeds for aquaculturists aiming to cater to the consumer willing to pay a premium for health enhanced foods," Kapuscinski says. "Researchers have to find the ways to cut the high production cost of microalgae in order for such nutritionally enhanced tilapia to succeed in the market. Towards this end, we are exploring ways to reduce production costs and the environmental footprint of microalgae production by using organic waste streams as a partial replacement for expensive inputs of inorganic fertilizer normally used to grow microalgae. Now that we've been able to fully replace fish oil in tilapia feed, our next step towards a fish-free diet is to replace fishmeal. We are now investigating combinations of different marine microalgae to achieve this goal in tilapia.""Our study shows that Schizochytrium is a high quality candidate for complete substitution of fish oil in juvenile Nile tilapia feeds, providing an innovative means to formulate and optimize the composition of feed while simultaneously raising feed efficiency of tilapia aquaculture," says Sarker, a research assistant professor in Dartmouth's Environmental Studies Program.Protein is typically the most costly nutrient in a formulated feed. Feed costs are usually the major operational expense in most aquaculture operations, typically ranging from 30% to 50% of the variable operating costs. Protein in the majority of formulated fish diets (worldwide) depends greatly on fishmeal, which is more costly than high quality, plant-based protein sources, such as soy protein.
