Global Aquaculture Innovation Award finalist Pegasus Science aims to simplify mycotoxin measuring in aquafeeds with near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy.
Study reviews biological composition, processing methods and production and research needs for the red earthworm, an aquafeed protein source candidate.
Genetic selection research finds that vegetarian versions of rainbow trout can be raised on a cost-effective and fully plant-based diet.
The increasing use of automatic feeding systems in shrimp ponds has brought attention to the need to improve the physical quality of aquafeeds, because their properties largely affect the performance of these feeders.
Aquaculture is the “winning protein,” according to a new Rabobank report that its author, Gorjan Nikolik, said is intended to draw the bank’s agro-industry clients to opportunities in the fish farming business.
To position aquaculture for future growth, it needs tools to evaluate a growing spectrum of alternative ingredients and formulated diets designed to optimize fish health and efficient production.
Formed in 2015, following Cargill’s acquisition of salmon feed specialist EWOS to complement its own warm-water aquaculture feed business, Cargill Aqua Nutrition produces feed for salmon, tilapia and shrimp in 20 countries around the world.
Aquanetix, launched by two fish biologists, employs cloud technology for electronic data collection, enabling farmers to monitor infrastructure, minimize feed losses and make informed operational business decisions based on real-time reports about their stocks.
Aquafeed formulas should perform under an optimal set of processing parameters to achieve desired attributes, maximizing nutritional value and extruder output.
