This study examined changes in the biochemical composition of the microalga Nannochloropsis sp. cultivated as a potential feedstock for aquafeeds, and presents results on its productivity, protein content and lipid composition.
Science tells us that domesticated livestock and fowl cannot begin to address our world’s near-term protein needs, and that farming fish is our best option. Getting more public support is critical to the success of aquaculture and our planet.
Oysters provide important, natural filtration of water and are an important component of many healthy coastal ecosystems because their active filtering can help improve and maintain water quality. For many coastal communities, oysters are an important food resource and excellent
KnipBio, a Massachusetts-based biotechnology startup founded in 2013, is refining the manufacturing process for a promising aquaculture feed ingredient that may one day form the foundation of the food that farmed fish eat.
Dado que la producción de proteínas terrestres está confinada por la tierra limitada y disponible, la acuacultura es la solución lógica a nuestras necesidades nutricionales. Podemos tomar esto seriamente o podemos dejar que nuestros nietos crezcan en un mundo preocupantemente
As terrestrial protein production is confined by limited available and suitable land, aquaculture is the logical solution to our nutritional needs. We can get serious about it or we can let our grandchildren grow up in a world eerily similar
Poor-quality ingredients can’t become good-quality ingredients. Quality protein is essential for the healthy growth of any omnivorous or carnivorous aquaculture species. Insect meals seem to fill this need, and their mass-scale production appears to be sustainable.
Since camelina and flaxseed oils contain more omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) than most plant oils, the authors investigated them as replacements for fish oil in diets for cod, salmon and trout.
The authors conducted research to determine the optimum dietary protein levels and protein:energy ratios for different age groups of olive flounders.
