Major shifts in fish feed formulations
MetadataShow full item record
Fish Feed formulations are undergoing major shifts, away from fishmeal and toward the plant, protein concentrates. One reason is the pressure that fish meals and fish oil- for - example, from anchovies, sardines, sprats, mackerels, herrings, and sardinellas - put on dwindling fish stocks. Plant protein concentrates can be easily formulated to contain very low or even no fishmeal and still meet the dietary amino acid requirements of the fish. With funding from Department of Science and Technology, the University of the Philippines Visayas and the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (SEAFDEC) Aquaculture Department are cooperating in a study to develop more efficient diets for the bangus broodstocks to increase production and ensure the quality of Larvae production.
