New feed ingredient database aims to help lower cost of aquafeeds
MetadataShow full item record
Three decades’ worth of research on fish feed ingredients in Southeast Asia will be hosted in an online database that aims to help reduce the aquaculture industry’s reliance on fish-derived meals and oils, as well as significantly lower the cost of feeds. Fish-derived meals and oils take up to 40 percent of formulated feeds especially for carnivorous species due to their well-balanced nutritional profile. “Reducing the amount of fish-based ingredients in feed formulations by using non-fish alternatives will significantly benefit the aquaculture industry,” said Dr. Roger Edward Mamauag, fish nutrition expert and head of the Nutrition and Feed Development Section of the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center Aquaculture Department (SEAFDEC/AQD) which is spearheading the development of the database.
