Authors analyzed the role played by fish and fishery products – from aquaculture or from wild capture fisheries – in the diets of the richest and poorest countries. Fish and fishery products have an essential function in human nutrition.

Los alimentos acuícolas para camarón – vivos, frescos o formulados – no deben ser un punto de entrada de patógenos potenciales para el camarón y/o sus sistemas de cultivo.
Wastes produced during food processing can be treated to generate a valuable single-cell protein ingredient for aquafeed with protein and amino acid content similar to fishmeal.
In a study, the authors evaluated the stability of six commercial feeds under temperature and salinity conditions that occur at most shrimp farms in Brazil.
Shrimp are farmed globally in a wide range of production systems and fed under diverse feeding strategies throughout their life cycles.
"New" ingredients like seaweed meals, particularly from various kelp species, provide trace minerals and vitamin A, and increase the palatability of shrimp feeds.
New ingredients and processes are figuring prominently in the production of more-nutritious and better-balanced “specialty" shrimp feeds.
New feed practices can reduce environmental impacts of shrimp farming, including the replacement of fishmeal and fish oil with sustainable lipid sources.
Rendered meals, or feeds with ingredients made from animal byproducts, meet many important criteria and have excellent prospects for aquaculture feeds.
